New Android/ Creative Zii

There is a new Android PMP the Creative Zii Plazma. Capable of HD video out and right now a total of 32gb onboard storage and a SDHC expansion slot. It is not a phone but does have Wifi and GPS. In theory someone could take it and add the appropriate cell phone bands and Sim card slot, if so this would be one awesome phone.

Was reading about this a little while ago. It would be awesome provided that some partners take hold and add that cell functionality.

From what i gather thats what the whole project is all about. They want someone else to take it and add all those features in theory and tune it to what they want. I love creative products and this could be the first creative phone.

Agreed it would be great. I loved my Zen Touch once upon a time so I will definitely be on the lookout to see if someone can pack the necessary phone chips and radios inside that form factor. I would hate to see it get bigger.

Even if it doesn't get cell phone bands, it still is Android so aka Google so tie that with Google voice and as long as it is connected to wifi you will get unlimited SMS and phone calling. If they can get google voice to work off of data.

Good point. That could be fantastic but I am out of wifi range a lot when I'm around town. I would still carry a cell phone.

Which makes this almost as good as a home phone and substantially cheaper.
