SINGAPORE - May 22, 2007 - Creative (NASDAQ: CREAF), a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, today introduced Creative ZEN Wav, a new video, photo and MP3 player specially designed with built-in stereo speakers and a bundled Creative ZEN Wav Acoustic Stand that let users enjoy an enhanced listening experience and share their favourite music and videos out loud with their friends on the go. This lightweight multi-talented player is also a perfect travel companion as it is equipped with FM radio, voice recorder, a world clock with alarm functions allowing users to listen and even wake up to their favourite music or radio station on business trips or on vacations. The silver player is available now in 2GB capacity.
Creative ZEN Wav is also able to morph into an instant mini portable boombox when it is docked in the bundled Creative ZEN Wav Acoustic Stand. The stand features a contoured design that enhances the acoustic output of music from the built-in speakers by concentrating the sound field to bring out a distinctive timbre tone for a sensational listening experience. The inner surface of the stand is specially designed to protect the player from abrasion through day-to-day usage by the incorporation of special padded cushions. The acoustic stand blends in well anywhere, whether at the office, at home or even at a family barbeque.
