Yep. I pre-ordered myself the 16GB Zen on Amazon, but I'm the most impatient person in the world.... argh... $249 for a great player like that is quite a steal. Especially if it just comes out. The similar Ipod (Inot thank you very much) is $399. And I'm so impatient I even got 2 day shipping on it... for just $10.

I hope it comes out soon. And you know those shipping estimates on Amazon are usually wrong so I don't trust those (I also live near one of their shipping warehouses I think).

Awwww, damnit. I had just today talked myself OUT of getting the new Zen. I figured I would just upgrade at CC for the new Sirius Stiletto when that comes out (2 yr protection plan so I can upgrade for nothing) but now this. As if Creative is speaking DIRECTLY to me here.

Crap, looks like I"ll be buying this now.

Nice.

Although, I've been debating what to buy (Zen vs D2), and had just almost convinced myself to not get the Zen... Now, I have this to consider, and maybe going ahead and taking the plunge for the 16 gig. Ugh, I hate my fickle self.

Creative fanboys can thank Sandisk for this price cut...

Creative fanboys? LOL.

I'm not a fanboy and I was looking forward to this. Flash based players are generally faster than HD based ones. I'm just getting anxious to have it already...

i didn't call you a fanboy...i was saying that they can thank Sandisk cause if it wasn't for the aggressive pricing of the soon to be released View, this drop wouldn't have come so soon...

I know what you mean... but the SD card support is still not the most perfect on the Zen... you cannot merge the music with main memory is one of the things. Then no bookmarks for SD card music..

Well that's a good point, sumx. Good point.

Covert, taking forever for sure... i'm pulling my hair out. I even emailed creative (doubt that'll get me far). I called Amazon... they told me the same thing with their usually inaccurate shipping estimates.

While the SD card support isn't perfect, it most definitely is a massive plus. I have 2GB SD cards around everywhere. And when they get this cheap you know it's still a good thing, despite issues.

So no estimate release dates yet?

I hope they drop the 8GB in price, I'm fairly interested in it ... if not then 16GB all the way, that is if they update the firmware

I'll wait for Creative's email. I tried calling but their sales/product information office is closed. I'll call for tomorrow.

I heard the date "September 27th" but I don't remember from who. But not sure.

I say Amazon is probably the best place

Alright so I just looked into the Meizu M6... I must say I am very very very impressed, I'm loving the software/firmware and how small it is (smaller then the Zen, plus the Meizu M6 SL will be thinner then the Zen too!)

Too bad no card reader

If it is any thinner then the Zen, I'm afraid I'll break it. The Zen is thin enough... lets face it... .44 inches... that's thin enough. Any thinner... well would make me wonder about the durability.

Haha good point... I personally don't want it any thinner then the Zen either, I just want the SD card capability.

I'm really liking the simple interface of the M6, along with UMS/MSC and File browsing capabilities!
