The Creative Zen Micro

Creative Zen Micro

Creative has just officially thrown down in taking on the iPod mini with their new 5GB Zen Micro MP3 player. First off it comes in double the number of colors—Black, White, Silver, Dark blue, Light blue, Red, Purple, Citrus Orange, Lime Green and Pink—and is exactly the same width as the iPod mini, three-tenths of an inch shorter, and two-tenths of an inch thicker, and has 25% more storage capacity, a built-in FM tuner, a removable 12 hour battery (believe us, this is a big deal), a vertical touchpad like the one found on the Creative Zen Touch, customizable menus, and the ability to sync your calendar, contacts, and to do list with Microsoft Outlook. They're taking pre-orders on it for $249.95. Click to see a pic of the Zen Micro up close.
