SINGAPORE - Dec. 19, 2003- Creative Technology Ltd. (NASDAQ: CREAF), a worldwide leader in digital entertainment solutions for PC users, today announced its most remarkable combination of high storage capacity and small size in a portable audio player. The lightweight and compact NOMAD® MuVo²® 4GB is as small as a flash memory based player at 67mm by 66.5mm, yet with its tiny Compact Flash Type II one inch micro drive it can hold up to 2100 songs in high-quality WMA format! A fraction of the size and weight of the Apple® iPod? 10GB*, the NOMAD MuVo² 4GB holds almost as much music yet is priced at an estimated street price of only S$649.
"We're bringing the best of both worlds to portable audio with the NOMAD MuVo2 4GB," said Joseph Liow, Vice President of Creative Labs Asia. "The flash player market is hot; people like to carry a small player wherever they go. But with the NOMAD MuVo² 4GB, now you can have a super compact player yet take up to 2100 songs with you. You don't waste time deciding what music to take with you when you go out; this little player packs hundreds of hours of music."
Cased in sophisticated silver and pearl white with an elegant blue backlit LCD screen, the NOMAD MuVo2 4GB (pronounced MuVo squared) not only looks like a flash player, it's just as easy to use. With super fast USB 2.0 transfer and simple drag and drop mass-storage class functionality.
14-Hour Removable Li-Ion Batteries
The NOMAD MuVo² 4GB features an easily removable and USB rechargeable Li-Ion battery to provide up to 14 hours of continuous music playback on one charge.
Small in stature but big in sound quality, the NOMAD MuVo² features outstanding audio quality at 98dB SNR, and supports both MP3 and WMA formats. The player offers out-of-the-box support for Windows Media Player 9 Series, as well as access to the broadest selection of music download services using WMA.
