Creative to offer 32GB Zen? A slur of recent rumors and "possible" confirmations have spread across the blogosphere and several well-known tech resources claiming that Creative will soon offer a 32GB Zen player to the market. The rumors appear to stem from a mistake on the Creative Singapore site, which displayed information on a 32GB Zen MP3 player for a time.
The site showed a line-up for the flash memory-based player offering storage capacities of 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and a world's first (flash-based) 32GB. Creative was already the first to offer up a 16GB flash-based player, beating the market leader Apple Inc. in a flash capacity race, and now may be looking to take another step ahead of the iPod maker.

Flash-based players can offer better access times, lower power consumption and also lose the mechanical failure risk that has to be taken with constantly-rotating HDD's. However, achieving the same storage capacity of a HDD in a solid state storage system is no easy task, and could be considered the (current) holy grail for many tech companies.

If i was smart i would have gotten this instead of the apple ipod. I wanna get one and the only time that would happen is if my ipod would malfunction. I guess everyone has to decide whats best for them i would recommed getting something that is easy like this cause u can copy and past the music easy without having to worry about software needs and accidental formats if connected to new computer and more...
