Creative announces player to rival iPod Nano Creative is taking another shot at Apple's huge market share by announcing a rival for the iPod Nano.
The new player, the Zen Wav will include a smooth,rounded metallic shell similar to those of a Nano. The Wav will have a 1.5-inch screen, FM radio, microphone for recording, and a small directional pad like those in the Zen V line. An added perk is an integrated pair of speakers to provide sound without the need for a speaker dock.

The only model known so far is a 2GB model and that will be released in Singapore this week. There is no set price or release date for the North American version as of yet, but they should be out before the end of the year.

Having built in speakers is a thing that i would go for. Although i have an ipod it will be awhile before i invest in another portable media player.

I thought the Zen V WAS the iPod Nano "rival"...

Maybe the article should be renamed "Creative desperately tries AGAIN to create an iPod rival"

That said, I do love my MicroPhoto...

Creative should make commercials. That would be their "real" iPod killer. Does anybody know why they don't advertise? A little advertising couldn't hurt anybody.

They could use the profits from the iPod sound docks that they make. That would be a laugh.
