Device marks Creative's foray into cellular market

Creative subsidiary ZiiLABS has announced that it will unveil the Zii smartphone platform at the upcoming Zii Summit event. The ZMS-05 system-on-a-chip (SOC) components are claimed to be the first to offer 1080p video playback capabilities on a handheld device. The Media Rich Processor also boasts OpenGL ES 3D graphics with acceleration for web browsing, video playback and imaging.

The company initially introduced the ZMS-05 early this year at CES, along with plans to support Google's Android OS. The processor design integrates two ARM cores and all of the required controllers onto the same chip. ZiiLAB's StemCell Computing architecture allows the cores to be utilized for a wide range of tasks.

The Zii Summit is scheduled for December 1st and 2nd in China. [via myCreative Fansite]
