Creative Zen Stone

Creative Zen Stone
The Zen Stone from Creative is their latest offering to the MP3 market. The Zen Stone is a small 1GB flash player which is similar to the iPod Shuffle in size/design etc… The Zen Stone is available in several colours as well as the white version pictured above. As can be seen, there is no screen which means that any song is randomly selected allowing for a more varied listening experience. A lack of screen can be seen as a problem, but in the case of the Zen Stone I think it is just right for what Creative are trying to sell and the market they are targetting.

Creative have said that the player is cheaper then the iPod equivalent and has better audio quality. Creative is an audio specialist and it does make sense for them to make the best possible experience for the user. Transferring music is done via a mini-USB cable and this allows you to transfer a lot of songs. Battery life is also good too running at 10 hours with its rechargeable battery.

Costing 30 pounds this is a very nice alternative to the iPod Shuffle.
