Developer Zii EGG gets Android, due for ZMS-05

Creative's sub-brand ZiiLABS on Tuesday released the previously unveiled optimized implementation of the Android operating system for its Plaszma development platforms, including the Zii Egg media player and ZMS-05 system module. The Android Plaszma release is based on Android 1.6 and lets supporting handheld devices play back 1080p videos for the first time.

Zii Labs developers can now download the release for the developer edition of the Zii Egg to unlock multi-format HD, HDTV video output and OpenGL ES acceleration for the device. They can also use the experience to program the ZMS-05, a SODIMM RAM card that can be integrated into custom baseboards and handheld electronics or handsets, and integrate it into future devices with Android's full feature set.
