ZiiLABS announces Jaguar tablet platform

Hoping to grab an extra piece of the tablet market pie, Creative's ZiiLABS have announced its reference Jaguar tablet platform that will make use of the recently announced dual-core ZMS-20 and quad-core ZMS-40 chips. The new Jaguar platform should be showcased at Computex as a 7-inch and 10-inch tablet running Android 3.x OS.

In case you missed it, the ZiiLABS ZMS-20 is a dual-core 1.5GHz chip based on Cortex A9 with 48 StemCell processors while the ZMS-40 is a quad-core 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 but with 96 of the same core floating point StemCell media processors. ZiiLABS noted that Jaguar platform has a modular motherboard design to enable OEM/ODM customization and supports wide-angle 7-inch 1024x600 and 10-inch 1280x800 capacitive and resistive LCD screens, up to 2GB of LPDDR2-800 and DDR2/DDR3 memory.

Other noted features of the platfrom include 5MP front and rear camera, 802.11bgn WiFi, 3G/4G/WiMAX and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR conectivity options, GPS, accelerometer, digital compass and gyroscope, stereo speakers and dual microphone array, up to 64GB of internal storage, USB 2.0 port and SDHC card slot. Two of the features really caught our attention as ZiiLABS is claiming that these devices will have extended battery life with robust dynamic power management as well as an "instantaneous on" feature.

Availability of these platforms are currently only for sampling and we honestly hope that we will see a device or two based on this platform soon as there is nothing better than some healthy competition.

Nice to see some new offering's. i really wish one of these firm's would release some based hardware platform's for the hacking community as well.

Especially with how much over-run they are bound to have, a base Arduino like platform would open up for more innovation on the uses of such hardware.

I guess that would be a lack of foresight and awareness on their part that there is relatively large niche in that market that they could fill as well.

Oh well, I'm willing to be that there will be a plethora of unused hardware getting tossed.

You really don't need any of those apostrophes ... but 'i' have a sneaking suspicion you may know that already.
