I have already written in short about Creative Zen in a post earlier. (I am too lazy to link it. Use the search facility 😉 )
Why am I writing about it again ? Well, couple of reasons:
1) I actually saw it today for the first time and tried using all the facilities to an extent.
2) I was going to get one for myself, but then I might have to sacrifice it if I want my K801i
3) Some of my friends didn’t even know there is a player called Zen!! (Message: Read my Blog 🙂 )
My First Impression:
Saw Sricharan’s Zen today. Sricharan was/is my senior in/from college. Shiva’s batch-mate. Shiva also has a Zen, but either he treasures it a lot or didn’t want me to take a look. 😉 I am thoroughly impressed. Why ?
Comes in 2,4,8,16 and 32GB variants.
It’s got an awesome screen. (For a tiny player, it sports a 2″ screen)
Good sound quality.
Radio with 32 built in presets
Sound Recorder that works really well and
Lot’s more such as organiser, DivX and Xvid support…etc.
Here are some photos:
Creative guys, here’s something you should know:
” Your product rocks and kicks ass. People here in India love their mp3 players and are buying them like crazy. But thanks to your lacklustre marketing and to an extent callous attitude towards the Indian market, most people still think that IPOD and MP3 players are synonymous. If you have a good product, you still need to market it you know!!”
Same goes for Zune. Bloody hell!! Make it available in India and see how many people buy it. You will be surprised.
Bottom Line: MP3 players are for Indian markets too. Sell it here and we are ready to buy them.
