Creative launches new Zen Krystal
Only in Hong Kong for now
Creative doesn't seem to be willing to give up too much of its market share to its competitors in the very crowded MP3 player market and it looks like they've got a good chance to steal back a fair share of that market with the new Zen Krystal.
For those looking for a pocket friendly, yet simple MP3 player with plenty of storage space, the Zen Krystal might just be what they've been waiting for. Not only does it have 4GB of storage space, but just in case you get bored with listening to your pre-loaded stuff, it also has a built-in FM radio.
Creative has also managed to squeeze in a pedometer to keep track of the distance and speed you've been going at, as well as how many calories you've burned. The Zen Crystal has a rather tiny 0.7in blue OLED display with a 64x64 pixel resolution, but somehow Creative has still managed to add three simple games to it.
It also has a built-in voice recorder and it will also display the time and date on the screen. The 10h battery life might be the only downside, but considering that the player only measures 57x37 x10.8 mm (HxWxD) and weighs in at a miniscule 22g, we can forgive this.
It connects to your computer via a USB 2.0 interface and supports drag and drop of files. No pricing was revealed and we hope this player will make it outside Hong Kong shortly, as well.
