The Wi-Fi actually seems to be pretty nice. The streaming (and downloading) of media files looks promising (too bad it seems to be slow) and the "zencast" type playback from the Creative network has the possibility of actually working out pretty good if they don't ignore it. However, the chatting feature on the other hand seems to be a complete failure. I can't imagine Creative doing any more wrong with what they have done. It is horribly implemented and the use of the already cumbersome buttons pretty much completely ruins the use of the interface.

Great videos Enzo!

That's not a real surprise. A Wi-Fi radio can be really power-demanding. If WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption is used, this also places a higher demand on the player's processor, which demands more power.

I curious..... what's the runtime with Wi-Fi turned off? That way we can get a better idea as to how much it's actually using.
