I keep hearing that iPods etc. are ‘multimedia devices’. This might be true but they’re really mp3 players that have been turned into a multimedia player. But with the much fabled Apple iTablet on the horizon Creative have put together their Zii EGG Android device to be released within the next few months.
The device runs Android on top of Creative’s ZMS-05 chipwhich allows developer to develop for Creative’s Plasza platform as well as Android.
I used to be a Creative mp3 nut, but lately their players have been a couple of years behind so I’m quite excited to see them pushing the boundaries again with what looks like an impressive device.
Creative released the ZEN X-Fi2 which had some plusesbut ultimately failed because of it’s poor touchscreen. It looks like they’ve learnt from the experience by putting a 10-point multitouch capacitive input.
