This week at the IFA Consumer electronics fair in Berlin, Creative launched their new supersmall creditcard sized media player, the Zen. With a width of 8.3 cm, 5.5cm high and measly 1.13cm thickness, it still manages to pack from 4/8/16gb internal memory and an SD card slot, making it upgradable to a total of whopping 32gb (counting the new Toshiba 16gb cards coming out soon). As if this wasnt enough, it packs a 2.5", 16.7 million color capable 320x240 bright tft screen..... and the real news is.... not only does it do Radio, voicerecordings, a calendar, but it is Itunes compatible my friends. Yes, the Zen does Aac4. Heres the list of formats it supports : Audio- MP3, WMA, AAC4 (.m4A), WAV (ADPCM), Audible 2,3,4. Video- MJPEG, WMV9, MPED4-SP3, DivX3 4/5 and XviD3. Wauv... thats what i call every Indiekids dream. Get it everywhere soon. 149$ for the 4gb, 199$ for 8gb and 299$ for 16gb, aint bad.
