Creative has released a new small Apple iPod nano rival, the Zen V Plus.
It's so tiny it tucks away perfectly inside the coin pocket of your jeans, the ZEN V Plus has such great curves and contours and is so lightweight that you'll almost forget it's there except for its phenomenal sound quality. Its beautiful 1.5-inch color OLED screen displays stunning digital photos, video and color menus.
The ZEN V Plus supports music subscription services including Yahoo! Music Unlimited, Urge, Napster To Go, and Rhapsody To Go, in addition to supporting Audible audio books and pay-per-download services including Soundbuzz. Each player includes a line-in port for direct recording from a CD player or other audio device, and a voice recorder for capturing notes on the go.
The ZEN V Plus includes all of the following features:
The smooth contours and tiny size of the ZEN V Plus enable it to fit naturally in your fingertips or to tuck away easily in a small pocket or purse. Available in glossy black or white with fun color accents of orange, green or blue, the ZEN V Plus looks as great as it feels.
Special coating on the entire player to help prevent scratching.
Vibrant 1.5-inch OLED screen for stunning video, photos and album art.
