Qooq Tablet: Now We’re Qookin with Qrisco!
January 3rd, 2013
I’ve always been somewhat perplexed by users having more than one tablet. Still, I have to say that a smaller tablet, perhaps an inch or two smaller than the iPad Mini, could be handy to tote around daily. The oddly-spelled Qooq tablet doesn’t fit that particular bill, instead being designed specifically for kitchen use.
Made in France, the Qooq tablet was designed for cooks, so it’s splash-proof, heat and humidity resistant, and has a retractable support that serves as a stand. If you use it with greasy hands, don’t worry, because the grease can be easily cleaned off with a damp cloth. It’s got a 10.1-inch screen, an ARM Cortex A9 processor, 8GB of memory, built-in Wi-Fi, and a customized interface that has a meal planner, browser, and built-in virtual cookbook. It can also be used for surfing the Internet, viewing videos or images and listening to music.
This all sounds pretty cool. However, I’m sure that anyone with an inexpensive tablet could duplicate these functions with a waterproof case and the right cooking apps, which will probably add up to less than the Qooq’s $399(USD) retail price. But if you’re looking for a stylish gadget, dedicated to kitchen use, you should definitely check out the Qooq.
