Creative Zen Micro - The First Hours
Today my Creative Zen Micro arrived. :) We love Creative, we love Amazon. And we don't hate Parcelforce too much for spending a bit too much time on delivery.
First impressions: It is small, beautiful and cool. Most design principles have been stolen from Apple, but well, who cares. Compared to my old Nomad Zen 20GB version I this is a tiny little thing that is just a dream after hauling the 20GB harddrive around the world for more than two years.
The device operates more or less as the old Nomad. Having had the opportunity to compare the Zen Micro with a iPod Mini I must say that when it comes to design the iPod wins, and when it comes to useability the Zen wins - by far. (The iPod menu structure, with only one possible button, is a nightmare.)
Well, the Zen is playing - already hooked up with Napster To Go. More news will follow...Posted by ludvig at February 9, 2005 11:45 PM | TrackBack
