Creative adds ZEN MX PMP

Creative has added a new entry-level model to its portable audio player line-up with the ZEN MX. Available in models with 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, the new players look largely like the company's current ZEN players with detail changes to the control button layout. The same 2.5-inch LCD display with 320x240 resolution remains. Supported audio files include MP3, WMA (with DRM) and Audible 4. As for videos, only Creative's proprietary video-CMV format is compatible. Creative did include its Creative Centrale software that will convert videos into the format, however.

Apart from the onboard storage space, the ZEN MX has an SDHC card slot for expandability. Files can be transferred between the internal memory and the SDHC card. In addition, the ZEN MX has an FM radio tuner and voice recording functions. The integrated battery is rated for 30 hours of audio playback and 5 hours of videos.

The Creative ZEN MX will reach Japanese stores on May 5th priced at the equivalent of $102 for the 8GB model and $144 for the 16GB unit. It's not yet clear whether the MX will reach the US.

At the same time, Creative announced its flagship portable multimedia player, the ZEN X-Fi, will get a price cut on April 28. The 32GB model will be reduced by the equivalent of $21 to $290, the 16GB by $42 to $196 and the 8GB by $21 to $144. [via Impress]
