This is it! This is probably going to be the first Android tablet using Creative's Zii chip ZMS-05 processor.
Intrinsyc licenses its RapidRIL telephony technology to Tattu Mobile for an upcoming Android Tablet. Currently, RapidRIL is also the software solutions that are used in more familiar Barnes & Noble's Android-based Nook e-reader.
No photograph or details were offered on the tablet, but it will most probably look like an enlarged Zii Egg with telephony features along with all the typical features of the dual ARM9 core ZMS-05 chip which offers 10-point Multi-Gesture Touch Screen, GPS, multimedia processing extensions, enabling 1080p HD video.
