Creative sheds bulk on Zen Vision players

updated 01:50 pm EDT, Mon March 12, 2007

Creative Zen Slim Players

Creative's Japanese division today had the distinction of launching a new change in the company's Zen Vision line. Both the compact Zen Vision:M and video-oriented Zen Vision: W are now much thinner, dropping as much as 20 percent in the case of the Vision:w. The reduction brings the players in line with the original versions despite storing twice as much at 60GB. No explanaion was given for the breakthrough, though the company may be using single-platter 60GB drives introduced at the start of the year.

The new Zen models launch today at the same $294 (Vision:M) and $379 (Vision:W) prices of their predecessors. An American update is likely to follow soon.
