Creative ships ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN

Creative has finally introduced its ZEN X-Fi and ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN digital media players.
The devices feature Creative’s nifty and effective Xtreme Fidelity X-Fi audio technology which gets the very best out of compressed audio files, restoring some of the quality lost when you rip music from CD.
Craig McHugh, president and COO of Creative said: “Some of the top recording artists in the music industry are very outspoken about the poor quality of digital music. We addressed this issue by inventing X-Fi technology, which restores the quality of music that is lost during the digital ripping process. Now for the first time ever we’ve been able to implement this technology in a ZEN.”
The ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN enables users to stream and download music, video and photos from a PC to the player over a wireless home network.
The media player hosts a 2.5-inch TFT screen, an FM radio and a microphone for voice recording. There’s a built-in speaker and the device is expandable using the SD card slot.
As a nice extra, the ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN supports instant messaging platforms including Yahoo! Messenger and Windows Live! Messenger
ZEN X-Fi 8GB – £109.99; ZEN X-FI with Wireless LAN 16GB – £139.99; ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN 32GB – £199.99. All three models ship with Creative’s EP-830 in-ear earphones.
