Android-Powered Creative Zen Touch 2 PMP Makes FCC Appearance.


With smartphones and do-it-all tablets, the traditional PMP has kind of lost its luster. Though cramming Android into said gadgets is helping prolong their lives a tad, turning them into “mini” tablets of sorts. On that note, the Creative Zen Touch 2 that was revealed and released in Europe many weeks back has made an official FCC appearance meaning a U.S. release is drawing closer. For those who need a quick refresher, the Zen Touch 2 features Android 2.1, 3.2-inch resistive (what?!) 480 x 320 display, GPS/WiFi (b,g,n)/Bluetooth 2.1 and a 2-megapixel camera. Other honorable mentions include an accelerometer, built-in speaker and microphone, and microSD card slot adding to the stock 8 GB or 16 GB storage offerings.

Currently, the Zen Touch 2 retails for £149.99 or £159.99 (8 GB/16 GB) in Europe. Translated for American dollars that comes out to roughly $230 and $250 respectively. Being that many higher-end smartphones can be had for the same price or less, we’d like to see Creative chop the price down a tad. Though in defense, a PMP can be likened to an unlocked phone — no subsidy = large up front cost. Check back for release date info and official pricing once it becomes available.
