60GB Zen Vision M and W
Introduced at the start of the year, the Zen Vision:M has remained one of the few viable challengers to the iPod in a particularly crowded field. Even so, the Vision:M has remained at 30GB ever since its launch despite pressure to increase its capacity to match the 60GB ceiling of its Apple rival. An imminent change is set to take place at the end of the month, according to recent revelations. Besides an informal announcement of a 60GB model by Creative president Craig McHugh during the latest quaterly report call, the news was revealed by readers of Maxim magazine who found an ad (pictured) in the latest issue which publicizes the new capacity. Other sources indicate that Creative is likely to release a 60GB version of the original, widescreen Zen Vision under the Vision:W name.
