Creative Zii Egg ships

Creative has begun its first shipments of the Zii Egg, reports say. The device is Creative's first touchscreen media player, equipped with a 3.5-inch, 480x320 multi-touch display. It supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS, and it is also notable for including two VGA cameras, plus HDMI output at resolutions up to 1080p. The current model is actually meant for developers, and uses an open-source operating system.

Initial testing is said to reveal a "shockingly bright" screen, with colors described as "vibrant and alive." Although the Egg's speakers are described as being no better or worse than those on the Zen X-Fi, audio quality is claimed to be the best on any Creative player to date. The company has not announced any plans for a consumer-oriented Egg release.
