Last summer Creative announced the launch of sales of their new player called Zen Touch, the next model in the Zen series. The “Touch” in the name denotes the menu-navigation tool employed in the device – a touchpad.

Being a portable audio player with support of all popular formats (MP3, WMA and WAV), the Zen Touch is also remarkable for its ability to store as many as 10 thousand musical compositions and to work as long as a whole day without recharging the battery!

I can’t say the market of digital audio players is a new territory for Creative since the company has been mining it for few years already. The accumulated experience of the company engineers should have generated something really exceptional. We’re going to see today if that’s really so.
