Looking for an MP3 player that isn’t an iPod? If you’re not a fan of Apple’s line of MP3 players, you will be pleased to find out that Creative has just announced their ZEN X-Fi3 media player that based on its dimensions alone could give the iPod Nano a run for its money.
Measuring in at 65 x 45.5 x 12.5mm, the ZEN X-Fi3 media player features a 2” screen and comes in either 8GB or 16GB storage capacities. The good news is that it also features a microSD card slot that will support an additional 32GB. It also includes a microphone, FM tuner, integrated speakers and will support Bluetooth 2.1.
It also features a technology Creative calls the X-Fi Crystallizer, a feature that the company has promised to restore fidelity when music has been ripped to CDs. It’s not exactly the most amazing MP3 player on the market today, but if you don’t want to drop money on an iPod and looking for something extremely portable, the 8GB version of the X-Fi3 will set you back $99.99 while the 16GB version will cost $139.99.
