ZiiLabs announced today that they will unveil their 7-inch and 10-inch Android tablets at the ongoing Computex 2011 fair. The tablets are designed for the latest Android 3.x operating system and are based on reference designs. Based on a motherboard concept, the JAGUAR allows an OEM or ODM to bring to market their own Android 3.x tablets in the shortest possible time.
Doesn't look like a Jaguar….
Hock Leow, president of ZiiLABS added, “As consumer demand for a wide-range of smarter, more connected tablets increases, so do the OEMs' needs to innovate while also shrinking their time-to-market. The JAGUAR platform combines our deep understanding and experience working on consumer devices and tablets with our ZMS processors, reference platforms, software and certification know-how to deliver a state-of-the-art platform that minimizes the complexities of introducing next-generation tablets”.
Sim Wong Hoo, Chairman and CEO of Creative Technology added, “Timing is everything and a frenzied land-grab is taking place in the tablet computing market. Android 3.X and ZMS-20 are designed and engineered specifically for this new and exciting tablet market where growth is expected to approach 100 million next year. The JAGUAR platforms based on ZiiLABS' ZMS-20 and ZMS-40 processors push performances to a new level that the world has never seen before and OEMs and ODMs can leverage this with JAGUAR to quickly stake a sizeable claim in this explosive market.”
The ‘Jaguar’ tablets (both dual core and quad core) will be shown in the ZiiLABS suite at Computex and you can expect a whole lot of new information, so stay tuned.
