Creative’s Quad-Core HanZpad stops by the FCC
Creative Labs is apparently about to bring its high-performance HanZpad to the United States. According to an Engadget report, the tablet surfaced on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website, which indicates the slate PC might soon become commercially available in the US.
The device seems to be based on a ZiiLABs platform and driven by Creative’s own ZMS-40 SoC (system-on-a-chip) that incorporates four physical ARM cores with a core frequency of 1.5GHz. In addition, the tablet presumably sports an In-Plane Switching (IPS) display that measures 10 inches in diagonal and delivers a native resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels.
Reportedly, users will be further provided with 1GB of internal memory and 32GB flash storage that is expandable by up to 32GB (64GB in total) through the built-in microSD card reader slot. The HanZpad is 7.95mm thick, features Wireless LAN connectivity and runs an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system with a custom UI/OS on top, developed by Creative Labs.
