I've been playing around with the Zii O for a couple of days by now. It's not a perfect device, but it's really good for the amount i paid.

First up - I've been looking for a tablet to watch my movies without bringing my Macbook along. I'm a real TV/Movie buff, and i have tonnes to catch up on. That's a huge reason why i didn't want to get the iPad; It's expensive, required tiresome video conversion, and i thought it was too heavy after playing with it in the stores.

The Good:
- Supported movie formats are more than what i need: Most of mine are in the usual .avi formats, and i used to spend about 6 minutes on each episode using Mac's iSquint to convert them into accepted .mp4 formats. With this tablet, all i need to do is to just drag and drop it. Everything just works and plays great.

- MicroSD Card Slot: I have a 32GB MicroSD to go along with the 8GB Zii O. It's really convenient because 32GB can hold alot of videos and music, and the tablet allows direct playback from the microSD. You don't need to copy it to the on-board memory in order for it to work.

- Apps: Here's a key point - You'll need to go into Settings > Apps to allow installation for non-Android Market Applications. It wasn't enabled by default. Once you enable this, just google around for Android installation files (.apk) and you'll be able to install stuff smoothly. So far, i've installed Evernote and Kindle; Everything syncs and works perfectly.

Some of you may have concerns about there not being support for the Android Marketplace. It wasn't that big of a deal for me because a friend pointed me to, and there was a whole lot of .apk files to download. Just use the Zii O browser to access the site, download, and they'll prompt you for installation.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife but, while it was in transit, she told me she wanted a kindle instead! I intended to send it back to Creative but I opened it up and have been playing with it for the past few days. It's great. The browsing experience is excellent, I just sit on my sofa and browse away. There's a pile of apps available, more than I could ever use. I love the BBC, Time and NY Times apps so far. The resistive touch screen is absolutely fine, very responsive...I don't see what all the fuss is about. The buttons on the bottom should be backlit, especially as I change orientation of the screen I tend to lose track of those buttons. The ebook reader is nice but I can't read text too long on backlit screens (I have a kindle for that). All in all, very nice.

Go to ANDROID PIT website on your Ziio browser-download the Marketplace app. Free to sign up for it and have tons(thousands) of free apps too-all in apk files. The marketplace allows you to download seamlessly. Download the Dolphin Browser-it makes the browsing a hundred times faster and never stutters unlike the built in browser. I think you may also be able to get that browser through the Ziio marketplace too but that is a pain to use and sign up for. 90% of apps work that are free in Android PIT-some do not. That is not a Ziio prob. Any Android tablet that is not recognized as a phone/has a data plan via Android Google Marketplace has this problem. That is also why no weather apps ever work on the Ziio, since these seem to require a data plan of some kind. Anyway, any Android device that is not officially recognized by Google as an official Android device will have these problems. If you buy an app that does not work and remove it from your device within a few minutes you get a refund immediately-but make sure you keep internet connectivity on. I still have not figured out how long you have to try before it won't give a refund-though I could look it up. The other marketplace is [...]-in the Android section of course-that is the marketplace which Ziio uses in its marketplace, but i would download directly: you click on the download link for any app and then a page comes up with(supposedly) the download, but it doesn't, so you have to click on the link that says if the download has not begun, click here. Then everything is straightforward. I think either the Kindle or the Nook apps are in one of these sites but i got mine from [...] will find that in some cases the app will fail to download. Try 2 or three times-always until a successful download occurs.Read more ›

I decided to get myself a new gadget this Christmas. But having a budget in mind, I couldn't afford the Ipad, so Creative ziio it is. It seemed to be a good choice as it's relatively affordable and suits my budget.

What I like/enjoy:

1. Sound quality: The speakers are loud - useful when sharing music or videos with my friends. Sometimes I just play music directly from it while I'm home. I like it :)

2. Lightweight: Given that we girls don't really enjoy carrying too much bulk around, this fits nicely into my handbag, even with the leather case on. And it's not heavy at all. Feels just like a book in my hand.

3. Screen: I am not sure if the touchscreen seems to be a trouble, but it doesn't cause me much hassle. My boyfriend owns an Ipad and I notice the differences in the touch experience. With ziio though, I find that the screen responds quickly to the provided stylus. Sometimes I even use my fingernails, which works as well - something which i cannot do on the Ipad. The screen is also really bright and all i have to do is to drag the videos into the ziio folder and viola it plays!

4. Store for apps: It has a store that recommends apps, which I can browse, download and install. It's quite easy to use :)

What I dislike:

1. Front camera - I feel that the front camera could be better, because the current quality is average.

2. No 3G - May not be convenient while commuting. I heard there are some ways to hook up your handphone's 3G to the ziio but i have yet to try that out. I hope Creative will improve on this.

Just my 2-cents, hope that helps!
