Creative Zen Wav Leak

Creative is about to make another attempt at upsetting Apple in the mid-range flash player business, as shown by a photo snapped at a Singapore retail shop. The Zen Wav will have a smooth, rounded metallic (or metal-like) shell similar to the iPod nano. By using the small directional pad borrowed from the Zen V line, however, the company will integrate a pair of speakers to provide public listening without a speaker dock. Also divulged in the leak is a 1.5-inch screen for displaying photos and videos, an FM radio, and recording for either its voice microphone or a direct line-in jack.

The Zen Wav is known to come in at least model, which will hold 2GB of storage and sell for the equivalent of $117 when it launches in Creative's Singapore homeland a week from today, on May 25th. Higher-capacity models and the possibility of different colors wasn't included with the solitary photo, though a North American release is likely sometime afterwards. [via Anything But iPod]

    I was VERY surprised the term 'ipod killer' wasn't used this time. It has to be first doesn't it?
