Zii Egg – new Android handheld computer could beat out the Apple iPod Touch


The Zii Egg is a rather swish new handheld computer which comes with lots of very smart technology built in. There’s 1080 HD video output for a start, a fast multimedia processor to match, twin cameras (one HD), a 10 point multitouch capacitive screen, GPS/WiFi/Bluetooth on-board and an SD memory card slot. Oh and did we mention the 32 GB of on-board RAM (and support for another 32 GB SD card). And all Android ready. Neat. It’s at times like this you realise Apple’s soon going to have its work cut out trying to stay ahead of the pack. $399.00 on offer. Video.

 The Zii EGG is an energy efficient handheld StemCell Computer based on the powerful ZiiLABS ZMS-05 media-rich applications processor. Besides its multi-touch 3.5-inch LCD screen, it can also output HD video at up to 1080p. The ZMS-05’s 24 floating-point processors deliver up to 8 GFLOPS of raw processing power, while the StemCell Computing’s flexible architecture allows stunning display of 3D graphics on a small handheld battery powered device.

  • They learned nothing from the G1, this thing is still sporting one of those accursed mini-USB headphone jacks. Utter fail.

  • 32GB internal memory != 32GB RAM

  • android seems to run well on the ziiegg, i can see that the response time is pretty fast.. saw another video at

    showing the gameplay on the zii made possible with the opengl es 3d graphics.. oh man, all i need now is to wait for a review of this device

  • Um Mystech… there is a dedicated 3.5 headphone jack on the device besides the mini-usb jack.
