The resistive display will always be a limiting factor regardless of any updates

Creative ZiiO 7

from Pocket-lint

Google have repeatedly said that Android 2.x builds are not designed for tablets, with Android 3.0 specifically designed for the larger screen and offering a more complete experience. We’ve been in contact with Creative who have again confirmed that an Android 2.2 update is coming, but they wouldn’t commit to 3.0 – we suspect the resistive screen would be a barrier.
Android 2.2, if it does deliver the Android Market as promised, will certainly make life easier and improve the experience out of the box, although there is no guarantee it will bring the other Google appl... Full review

It's a good buy if you need an affordable tablet now

Creative ZiiO 7

from TrustedReviews
The Creative Ziio's screen's colours look washed-out, its built-in app store is horrible and it uses an outmoded resistive touchscreen, but it's still one of the best sub-£200 tablets money can buy. Video playback is decent, it's a good-looking device and with a bit of know-how and an hour or two's tinkering you can seriously boost its functionality... Full review

It’s more of a multimedia device with tablet features on the side

Creative ZiiO 7

from NotebookCheck

The Creative ZiiO 7" definitely doesn't belong to the verified "iPad Killers". But it's not trying to, either. All the same, you can get two Creative ZiiO 7"s with an 8 GB memory for the price of one iPad. In return, the Creative ZiiO 7" is rather more multimedia center. Considering the tablets possibilities of being connected to a TV via HDMI or wireless with the according audio speaker, it's still looking for its equals. Merely the resistive touchscreen and the old Android version dim the picture a bit. You get what you can expect for 249 euros from the case – namely plastic. Howeve... Full review

A budget Android tablet that more than justifies its own existence

Creative ZiiO 7

from Techradar
It's a long way behind the iPad and the Galaxy Tab in terms of overall usability. But at just £199, the Creative Ziio does offer great value for money. If you've got £200 to spend, you won't find a better tablet than the Creative Ziio... Full review

It’s a combination of quality hardware and decent media software that will trump its competitors

Creative ZiiO 7

from Zath

You know what, I think we should leave it there. On a positive or I’m only going to be dragged back into slaughtering this device. There are so many flaws in the software it’s an easy conclusion to come to. If you want something that will leave something in your wallet, then you might want to consider this as I imagine it’s combination of quality hardware and decent media software will trump it’s competitors.

However, a meagre battery life, poor implementation of Android, bugs, bugs and more bugs (hopefully fixed in the imminent update to 2.2) and terrible... Full review

A long way from polished perfection, but it’s a tempting way to join the tablet rush at half the price of most 7in rivals

Creative ZiiO 7

from PC Pro
Despite all this, the Creative ZiiO is rarely frustrating, which is high praise when some £400 tablets have left us tearing our hair out. It feels a little toylike at times and it certainly has its foibles – of which providing nowhere to store the stylus when not in use is the most annoying – yet it remains likeable throughout. Many tablets at twice the price are no more usable or consistent, so as long as you’re fully aware that you’re getting an unpolished Wi-Fi-only device, the ZiiO is an affordable way into a crowded market...

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this manufacturer.
