Blowing away Apple: Creative on Monday revealed the 20GB version of its Zen Micro, upping the capacity from 4GB-5GB-6GB. Same body as the Zen Micro, 4x-larger hard drive, but a shorter name: just plain "Zen."
I notice that the battery life is shorter by 1 hour (from 12 to 11 hours), and that removability is not explicitly stated. I wonder if it uses a smaller battery, built-in to accomodate the large hard drive? And the body is magnesium, allowing its walls to be thinner than the double-layer plastic used for the Zen Micro(*). Ship date was not announced.
Also announced, the Zen Neeon. Creative calls it "The Smallest and Lightest Harddrive MP3 Player." That it is. The battery is said to last 16 hours, but is not removable. The LCD screen displays a variety of colors, but I find the body design not that pleasing.
(*) Over the weekend, the Zen Micro slipped from my hand, and fell a couple of feet onto the concrete. Good news: no damage, visible and otherwise. I am guessing the thick plastic walls absorbed the shock.
