New Creative slim PMP can support iTunes Plus tracks Creative's latest Zen player, set to hit retail shelves next month, will be the first player from the company to support AAC and iTunes Plus tracks.
Additionally, the new slim PMP will have a 2.5-inch color screen and support for SD memory cards incase the onboard memory is not sufficient.

The new player will be available in three models, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB models, with $149, $199, and $299 USD price tags respectively.

The official specs read that "Video formats supported include WMV9, MJPEG, MPEG4, as well as DivX 4 and 5 and XviD. Approximately 5 hours of video and 25 hours of music playback are possible through the device."

As with most Creative players, the Zen will have built-in FM radio and a voice recorder.

Sounds like the 4GB version if it likes DivX and mp3's.
Buy the 4GB cheap and stock up SD cards or the 16GB and not worry...Decisions, decisions...

I'd wait a little bit after they first come out. Creative will drop the price on them as they always do.

I would not mind geting this as a multimedia player, however only for a little amount of media files 8 gigs would be the minimum required.
