Default Creative's Little ZEN Style M300

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2011/05/05/creative-debuts-compact-bluetooth-enabled-zen-style-m300-pmp/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2011/05/05/...style-m300-pmp/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Creative Technology Ltd today announced the launch of the Creative ZEN Style M300 music, photo and video player with Bluetooth wireless audio playback. Just 55 x 44 x 12 mm in size, the Creative ZEN Style M300 is packed with features including a microSD card slot and 1.45" TFT screen with Touch Buttons, and it is priced from only $39.99."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1304624138.usr1.jpg" /></p><p>If you're looking for a small MP3 player that doesn't cost a bunch, and is easy to carry/hold on your person (gym workout anyone?) then this new ZEN looks like a winner. It comes in 4 GB, 8 GB or 16 GB sizes and can be expanded via microSD cards. Add in 20 hours of battery life and Bluetooth for wireless headphone support, and you have a compelling MP3 player - especially with prices running from $50 to $90.</p><p>I just wish devices like this would sync with the Zune software - I don't even have my music loaded into Windows Media Player 12 any more, I use the Zune software for all music listening duties. Creative can make the best software in the world, but without a solid ecosystem of software and entertainment to go with it, they simply can't compete with Apple products.</p>

Oh wow, that actually looks good. Pity Creative is late to the party here. The company nowadays has a habit of messing up the final execution of their products.
