Creative introduces Iriver Clix like Zen M300 and M100 DAP

In design recycling ideas and concept is everything and today’s announcement from Creative latest DAP with the M300 and M100 series is no exception. So let’s put aside the fact that these new DAP look really similar to Iriver first Clix and let’s concentrate on what’s new here. Both models comes in a rather tiny body of 55x44x12mm with a 1.45” screen, SDHD Card slot and support MP3, WMA and WAV audio files as well as JPEG and basic but rather lame Transcoded SMV Videos. The different between both models comes with Bluetooth, FM Radio as well as a storage capacity going from 4 to 16GB for the M300 and only the choice between a 4GB and 8GB model for the M100 Series.

Creative Technology Ltd today announced the launch of the Creative ZEN Style M300 music, photo and video player with Bluetooth wireless audio playback. Just 55 x 44 x 12 mm in size, the Creative ZEN Style M300 is packed with features including a microSD card slot and 1.45″ TFT screen with Touch Buttons, and it is priced from only $39.99.

Key Features of the Creative ZEN Style M300
Wireless Connectivity with Bluetooth 2.1

This allows users to enjoy music from the player wirelessly from all compatible stereo Bluetooth headphones such as the Creative WP-Series, which includes the ultra affordable Creative WP-250, and Bluetooth speakers such as the all new ZiiSound Dx Series and Creative D80, as well as Creative’s existing line-up of wireless speakers

Additional Space for Music with microSD Card Slot
Users can add up to 32GB* of music on top of the player’s built-in memory

Touch Buttons
The player’s touch sensitive control buttons let users navigate through the player’s menus easily and comfortably

FM Radio
The built-in FM Radio lets users add up to 32 preset stations

The Creative ZEN Style M100 was also launched today, offering the great design and features of the ZEN Style M series of players without Bluetooth connectivity and FM Radio.

Both the Creative ZEN Style M300 and Creative ZEN Style M100 feature Audible support, giving users the option of enjoying a wide range of audio content that includes books of all genres. Both players also come pre-installed with a complete edition of Alyson Noël’s Evermore, the first book in her thrilling Immortals series.
