At this rate, 2011 is shaping up to be the year of the tablet -- and Creative is on board with the ZiiO. But before any device hits the market, the FCC needs to make sure it checks out (lucky FCC, they see everything early). 

The Creative ZiiO will rock a 10-inch screen, with a 1024 x 600 screen resolution. It'll be running Android 2.1, the current manual suggests that it will be a pretty basic tablet. Oh well, that's why we have hackers, right?  [FCC via CrunchGear]

I'm sure Andrew was in jest, but the FCC never touches any of these products. They review reports from certified testing labs.

I used to like Creative... not sure what happend to them. Hopefully the HTC's and MOTOs drown out all the non sense tablets.

Same here! Loved Creative...they made my very first Mp3 Player before Apple even released the iPod! It was a huuuge brick, weighed a ton with a tiny little screen but was sturdy as hell and I loved it dearly lol. Then the iPod came out and took over everything, as well know, but I still miss it from time to time.

It was called something like "Creative Zen Jukebox" - google image it, it was a brick with a tiny screen lol.

Here it is!:
Haha, almost forgot about the little trackwheel on the side to navigate with. Boy how times have changed. Now even trackballs are outdated, with trackpads being the preference.

I hope this is a very inexpensive tablet because by the time this comes out with 2.1 it will be quickly forgotten unless it's dirt cheap.

2.1 ? Really? Ouch many different tablets are there gonna be.

Here we go again! 2.1??? 2.3 is already out, 3.0 is available to tablet developers. I don't understand this type of behavior.
