Do you want to touch the Zen Touch?

Creative Zen Touch

Declaring it to be a legitimate challenger to the iPod (as opposed to all the illegitimate ones—you know who we're talking about), CNet gives some love to Creative's new 20GB Zen Touch MP3 player. We already knew that it had a startlingly long battery life of 24 hours, but what we really want to know is whether that vertical touch-sensitive scroll pad is all it's cracked up to be. Sound like it definitely makes scrolling and navigating a lot easier, but when you're thumbing through a library of several thousand songs it's still easier to use the circular touch pad used in the iPod.
