Zen Touch: \"larger, cheaper\" alternative to an iPod

updated 07:05 am EDT, Mon June 14, 2004

Creative Zen Touch

Creative Labs last week introduced the , a 1.8-inch hard drive-based portable audio player, which the company positioned against Apple's iPod: "[It] holds twice the music and provides up to three times the battery life as a 20GB iPod." It features a patent pending "Touch Pad" control, which "enables a user to simply move a thumb up and down in a natural motion on the Touch Pad to navigate quickly and easily." The metallic graphite and white gloss-colored displays track and menu information on a large blue-backlit LCD screen and supports both WMA and MP3 music, USB 2.0 connectivity, and Creative MediaSource (for Windows), which provides song management functions. It will ship later this month for $270.
