Curie

The perfect size: 8" IPS

Greater definition and contrast

With an IPS screen, colours are brighter and more intense than on other LCD screens, meaning images and videos appear sharper and more vibrant. And as it has greater contrast than other screens, reading e-books and browsing the Internet is much more enjoyable.

No blind spots: 178° viewing angle

Normal LCD screens have a reduced viewing angle that only allows you to interact with the tablet when you are front-on; if you tilt the tablet, you can no longer see what's on the screen. The bq Curie, with its viewing angle of 178°, has no blind spots, so you can use it whether you're lying down, sitting up or leaning back.

Eight inches, designed for browsing

If 7 inches aren't enough, but you don't want to sacrifice mobility, then the bq Curie is the tablet for you. At 8 inches it's perfect for carrying, while its 4:3 screen format is specially designed for browsing and reading.

Dual Core CPU, Quad Core GPU: More speed, more power

Cortex A9 1.6 GHz Dual Core Processor

The bq Curie's Cortex A9 1.6 GHz Dual Core processor allows you to use more complex applications and consume more content without suffering a reduction in performance. Its twin cores also make browsing more fluid and help you download applications much more quickly.

Quad Core graphics processor: Gaming at top speed

With a quad-core processor, the gaming experience is totally different: faster, more spectacular and super high-performance.

Capture your best moments

The bq Curie is equipped with both a front and rear camera. The front camera is perfect for videoconferencing, while the rear camera is specially designed for recording videos and taking photos, all of which you can save in the tablet's 16 GB of internal memory.

Bluetooth. Optimised data transfer

Sharing the contents of your tablet with another tablet, smartphone or PC is as easy as syncing both devices. Simply activate the Bluetooth connection on each device, select your tablet as the device to sync to, and then transfer your files. It's the easiest and most convenient way to transfer files, with no need for cables or Internet access.

Ultra-connected: micro-USB OTG and HDMI Dual

HDMI Dual

The HDMI system enables you to view your tablet's content on a TV or computer screen. As it uses Full HD technology, you can play your movies, games and music videos in high-definition (provided your TV or computer screen is also Full HD), and thanks to its Dual technology you can view content simultaneously on both your tablet and TV or computer screen, making interaction so much simpler.

Increase its features with accessories

Your tablet's Micro USB OTG port and Bluetooth technology enable you to increase the possibilities for interaction by connecting accessories, such as a mouse, keyboard or speakers.

The world's most advanced operating system

With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

The bq Curie runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. This latest version of Android boasts improved response time, smoother movement between screens and optimised applications, and also includes new features such as an improved notification system, advanced control functions and offline voice dictation without the need for a Wi-Fi connection. With Jelly Bean you can to let you adjust the size of widgets, allowing you to customise your desktop to your own liking.

Thousands of free applications

You can enjoy thousands of free applications, with more being added every day. Games, comics, image- and video-processing apps, professional apps, reading apps... every app you can think of, just one click away.

Automatic updates with OTA

Whenever a new bq update becomes available for your bq Curie, the tablet will let you know automatically. Just press 'Accept' and the new firmware will start installing itself. It's that easy!


Who was Marie Salomea Skłodowska Curie?

“Science is beauty, and it is because of this beauty that we must do scientific work.”

Warsaw (Poland), 7 November 1867
Passy (France), 4 July 1934

Marie Curie was a pioneering physicist and chemist in the field of radiation. With her husband, Pierre Curie, she discovered the elements polonium and radium. Her advances in the field led her to become the first person to receive two Nobel prizes for different specialisations: in 1903 she was awarded the prize for Physics, and in 1911 for Chemistry.

List of errata

The bq Curie's processor is a 1.6 GHz Dual Corte Cortex A9. Due to a printing error, it is shown as 1.4 GHz on the packaging for certain units.
