Creative Announces New MP3 Player
Creative has announced today that it will be releasing a new Creative Zen mp3 player. The new M300 media player will feature wireless connectivity and Bluetooth 2.1, allowing users to enjoy their music wirelessly through a set of Bluetooth headphones. The M300 will also feature a microSD Card slot and is capable of having up to 32GB in additional music from built-in memory.
The device comes with an FM radio as do most Zen mp3 players and allows the user to preset up to 32 stations. The M300 has a 1.4-inch TFT display and will be available in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB- while this doesn’t sound like much storage for an mp3 player, don’t forget that you’ll be able to add storage via SD cards should you need to.
Creative claims that the device holds a 20 hour battery life and supports MP3, WMA, WAV, AAX, and Audible Format 4 files. The 4GB will start at $63 US, $71 for the 8GB, and about $100 for the 16GB- a great deal if you’re new to MP3 players and just want something portable for the gym. Definitely give it a shot, I’ve owned a few Zen Creative MP3 players in the past and have been very happy with them. The devices offer plug n’ play support. I just hope Apple won’t sue them for ipod nano infringement!
