Zen Neeon 2
Not content with the previously announced Zen V and V Plus digital audio players, Creative announced on Wednesday the Zen Neeon 2 line. The Neeon 2 comes in what are now fairly commonplace models for flash-based players: 1,2, and 4 GB capacities are available in as many as five colors for the 1 and 2 GB versions (though colors only apply to the backplate). FM radio and recording are also present. The main distinguishing feature is its video playback: while the V Plus can already play video, Creative boasts of 8 hours of AVI video playback on the Neeon 2 (albeit on a 1.5" screen). The North American release date and pricing hasn't been set, but Singapore pricing translates to US prices of $125, $170, and $195 for the 1, 2, and 4GB models respectively.
