 The Creative Zen Sleek - Engadget
We could do a little without the devices named with adjectives, but no denying Creative's new Zen Sleek is just that—for a Creative device, anyway.
But you're going to love this: the Sleek is the first player in its class to not only feature similar specs to the full-size iPod, but to trump it in both size and weight: at 10.1 x 5.9 x 1.7cm (vs 10.4 x 6.1 x 1.6cm) and 157g (vs 167g).
Geeks and junior geeks will argue features to their last breath and still totally miss aspects like usability.
