And we all know that Hong Kong is the gateway to the massive China market. It says here that ZiiLabs held the Zii Summit in Shen Zhen, China which is just next to Hong Kong and can be commuted by MTR (their mass rapid transit transport system). During the Summit in early Dec 2009, Creative showed the world its first Zii Trinity prototype operating on Android 1.5 and optimized with Plaszma OS.
The selling point is that Creative uses its ZMS-08 stem cell and ZMS-05 stem cell chip which allows OpenGL ES3D providing high definition 3D graphic videos with its 3.1 inch large screen and it also support mini-HDMI interface. It is also feature packed with 5 mega pixel auto focus camera, 7.2mbps HSDPA, WiFi, GPS and bluetooth. Besides, with its proprietary X-Fi audio technology, no other smartphones can match its high quality audio.
It is also revealed that in the future model, the next gen Zii Trinity can support 4G (WiMAX or LTE - Long Term Evolution).
The Zii Egg is also featured during the Zii Summit and it is like the Zii Trinity without the phone function and has a larger 3.5 inch screen
With this added capability and low price in the Zii Trinity and Egg units, it is expected that many manufacturers will be interested in mass producing them using their own brand name and we will see more Zii partnerships in the days to come.
