Creative Zen Stone Gets Upgraded, Built-In Speaker

Creative knows a good thing when they see it and the Zen Stone has done surprisingly well for the company. When the first Creative Zen Stone hit the market, we enjoyed its rounded appearance and compact form factor. When they announced the Zen Stone Plus, we applauded the additional capacity and the inclusion of a simple display. And now Creative is upgrading the line again.

They’ll still carry the Creative Zen Stone and Zen Stone Plus names, but the upgraded version 2.0 devices come with some rather significant updates, including integrated speakers. The display-less Creative Zen Stone will now be available in blue, pink, champagne and pink, and it’ll rock a built-in speaker. They’ve also upped the storage to 1GB and 2GB.

On the flip side, the display-rocking Zen Stone Plus gets double the space as well, bumping to 2GB and 4GB variations. Along with the new mono speaker, the Zen Stone Plus will still have an integrated FM radio, voice recording, and an OLED display.

Prices start at $48 with availability commencing next month in Japan.
