ZiiLABS shows off Honeycomb tablets for OEMs ZiiLABS has showed off their new line of Jaguar Honeycomb tablets for OEMs this week, introducing the powerful "energy efficient" Android devices at Computex 2011.
The company, owned by Creative, uses their own processors, specifically the ZiiLABS ZMS-20 and ZMS-40 StemCell Processors.

Says the company:

As consumer demand for a wide-range of smarter, more connected tablets increases, so do the OEMs' needs to innovate while also shrinking their time-to-market. The JAGUAR platform combines our deep understanding and experience working on consumer devices and tablets with our ZMS processors, reference platforms, software and certification know-how to deliver a state-of-the-art platform that minimizes the complexities of introducing next-generation tablets.

Timing is everything and a frenzied land-grab is taking place in the tablet computing market. Android 3.X and ZMS-20 are designed and engineered specifically for this new and exciting tablet market where growth is expected to approach 100 million next year. The JAGUAR platforms based on ZiiLABS' ZMS-20 and ZMS-40 processors push performances to a new level that the world has never seen before and OEMs and ODMs can leverage this with JAGUAR to quickly stake a sizeable claim in this explosive market.
