Creative details new range of ZEN Style PMPs

Creative on Thursday revealed two new product lines for overseas, the ZEN X-Fi Style and ZEN Style. Either is meant to be stylish and offer a choice of colors. All ZEN X-Fis use a 2.4-inch display with a 320x240 resolution, a built-in speaker and a claimed 25-hour battery life for music or five hours for video. It can be had in 8GB, 16GB or 32GB capacities, and there is no expansion memory card slot.

It can play back MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV audio files as well as MPEG-4, WMV, XVID and DiVX files in up to 640x480 resolution. A TV output port is present, though the needed cable is optional. There is an FM tuner and voice recorder, as well as an RSS reader that requires a PC sync. An X-Fi sound equalizer is also built-in. The range costs the equivalent of between $114 and $178 and is thus far only slated for an April release in Singapore.

The ZEN Style range is more affordable, with two models, the 100 and 300, and capacities of either 4GB, 8GB or 16GB. The 1.8-inch, 128x160 resolution display will play back videos, though they first need to be transcoded into a proprietary format. Either model supports MP3, WMA, WAV and Audible formats, but only the 300 has an FM tuner and speaker. Both sport a voice recorder, while battery life is said to be 32 hours of audio playback and four hours of video. These will cost the equivalent of between $64 and $114 when they are released in Singapore in April.

US release dates are expected but not confirmed at this time. [via DAPReview]
