Display

LCD

Gone are the days of having to tilt the display to get a good viewing angle. The ZaTab features a state-of-the-art IPS display that is clear and vivid from all viewing angles.

 

 

 


Battery

Batter

Nothing is more frustrating that having a battery die. So we built the ZaTab to last all day long...and then some. With up to 14 hrs of battery life while watching movies, you could watch the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy when your heart so desires and still have battery left.

 

 

 


Expansion

microSD

A tablet is a very personal device. The ZaTab includes plenty of connections so that you may customize it to fit your needs. There are micro USB ports for expansion. There is a microHDMI port to output to a large screen. There is a microSD card slot which allows you add an additional 32 GBs of storage capacity. All these ports are conveniently located on the right side of the tablet.

 

 


Cameras Cameras

Not just one camera, but two cameras. One on the front for video conferences and self portraits. One on the back to take videos and photos of everyone else. Note that the camera is functional but has one remaining bug (pic doesn't fit nicely on screen) being fixed by us and devs. The update will be easy when it is ready.

 


Root

Root

Some manufacturers consider "root" to be a four-letter-word. We don't. The ZaTab is an open device. The bootloader is unlocked. Root access is available. We welcome the community to develop custom ROMs and port other Linux distros to the ZaTab.

    The ZaTab has been a nice tablet and has almost completely replaced my iPad. I love having the ability to transfer data with a USB cable. I decided to remove the screen cover which was getting scuffed and just keep the tablet in a neoprene case when not in use. This has improved the responsiveness of the touch and the clarity of the screen. The battery life when playing games is absolutely amazing. My only concern is that it is occasionally suggish when launching apps or web browsing the browser wil become unresponsive. If it could be snappier in that area then I would never use my iPad.

    Great tablet!

    I received mine, turned it on and right from the get-go it was amazing. I was most impressed with the full tablet protection fillm. Brilliant for sitting in bed and browsing the web, reading emails and drawing things.
    My children hijacked it once when we were going on a long trip and installed a ton of games and said they ran really well, much faster than their own devices (they have iPods and an android tablet).
    Turned out to have excellent battery life for reading books, and very easy to read at that size. Fell in love with some new applications like zinio (magazine reading), and Flipboard (really customizable news thing)
    Over all, brilliant tablet, great for every day use, for a good price!
