Creative’s has just released the Muvo T100 screenless MP3 player. The button layout resembles their other screenless player the Zen Stone and carries an almost identical feature set. The only difference appears to be the form factor and the built in USB plug. The player resembles a standard USB flash drive and also acts as one using a standard MSC (UMS) transfer protocol. The T100 handles the standard MP3 and WMA audio formats in addition to Audible audio book formats. With a 10 hour battery life the player will come in 6 different colors (just like the Zen Stone).
Currently the player is only available in Singapore and will sell for 90 SGD and 150 SGD ($60/$100) for 2GB and 4GB capacities. That’s actually not that bad considering you would only spend a little less on a standard flash drive. This would without a doubt be a great flash drive substitute for school or work use.
Creative’s new U-Clique personalization service is giving customers in Japan and Singapore a chance to dress up select flash players purchased now at the company’s online shops. For a nominal fee, Creative will print orange and purple butterfly designs on the 1GB Zen V and Zen Nano Plus in both countries, while multicolored diamonds (Zen V and Nano Plus) and art nouveau patterns (MuVo V200) are available only in Singapore and Japan, respectively.
Japan also offers two-line printing on the backs of the Vision:M (up to 16 letters), MicroPhoto (up to 12 letters), V and V Plus (up to 10 letters), and Nano Plus (one line up to 5 letters). Pricing for all text, regardless of length, is $9.
The designs are permanent, by the way, so make sure you really love butterflies before adding the Zen V to your cart.
