Creative Zen Touch - new iPod clone with touchpad
Creative has just introduced the Zen Touch portable audio player, with a 20 GB 1.8-inch hard drive and an astonishing 24-hour battery life (that's about 3x that of an iPod). Another cool feature is the touch pad:
"The Zen Touch is so simple and fun to use because the Touch Pad makes it easy to find your favorite songs, or you can just hit the random button for a mix of music to match any mood," said Lisa O'Malley, senior brand manager for portable audio at Creative. "Plus you can take the Zen Touch on long trips and leave the power cable at home without worrying about the rechargeable battery running out."
Unfortunately, like the iPod, the Zen Touch only plays MP3 and WMA; Ogg Vorbis support is missing.
You can preorder this new toy at Amazon.com for USD 269,99.
