While everyone was focused on the hubbub surrounding the launch of the Zen Vision W
and settlement with Apple
, Creative quietly went ahead and gave the Zen Vision:M
a bump in disk like we've been expecting
. The new 60GB player is available in either black and white (only) and appears identical to its 30GB sib albeit with the inclusion of a USB hosting capability -- a slick, convenient way to quickly transfer data off USB-enabled devices (think your digital cameras snaps) without a PC. Unfortunately, while the Creative website has plenty of deets on the 60 gigger, the Creative store makes no mention of the new player at all. Fubar. Anyway, expect this to get sorted in hours or days with the price to mirror that other 60GB player
pretty closely at around $399.
