Creative today announced the MuVo® Micro flash memory based MP3/WMA player.
Smaller than competing players and now available at incredibly low prices, the
Muvo Micro (model N200) comes in eight electrifying colors.

Its hard to believe such great sound quality comes from such a small player. The
MuVo Micro is so small that you forget you have it when its in your pocket, said
Sim Wong Hoo, chairman and CEO of Creative Technology Ltd. With eight different
colors and 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB models to choose from at such great
prices, theres a perfect MuVo for everyone.

At only 33.5mm by 65.5mm by 13mm and weighing at 32 grams, the incredibly thin
MuVo Micro measures approximately one third the thickness of the competing
iRiver player and about half the thickness of Samsungs competitive offering.
Even though it has an incredibly small size, the MuVo Micro enables line-in
recording to create MP3 files directly from a CD, mini-disc or record player,
and up to 15 hours of high quality digital voice recording. The MuVo Micro also
plays and records FM radio. With the built-in microphone, it can also directly
records voice notes, interviews or lectures, and holds up to 500 skip-free songs
on the 1GB model.

With the announcement of the MuVo Micro, Creative introduces a line of beautiful
flash memory-based MP3/WMA players with ultra-compact size and durable solid
state construction. The MuVo Micro ideally complements the Zen Micro line of 5GB
microdrive-based players which were introduced this week and are available in
ten colors, including eight that match the MuVo Micro. Now music listeners can
have a Creative MP3 player for any activity, from exercising with a flash
memory-based MuVo Micro to enjoying a 2500-song collection on a long trip or
connecting at home to a stylish Creative I-Trigue® speaker system. Users can
choose one of each player in a favorite color or mix and match as desired.

By offering broad compatibility with popular download services supporting WMA
and MP3 music, the MuVo Micro gives users a wide range of choices in acquiring
digital music. Regardless of whether users purchase tracks online, transfer
music from a PC, or import directly from any audio source with line-in encoding,
they can enjoy continuous playback of more than 15 hours of pristine, skip-free
music from a single AAA battery on any model of MuVo Micro. The music listening
experience is further enhanced by the bundled dynamic bass earphones for rich,
crystal-clear high fidelity playback. A blue, backlit LCD screen displays song
title, play time, play mode, FM tuner and preset settings. Favorite songs and EQ
settings, such as Pop and Rock, are effortlessly selected with one-finger using
the side-mounted scroller button.

Because the MuVo Micro requires no software, users can quickly and easily drag
and drop music, files and images to the player when it is connected to a PC USB
2.0 port. The MuVo Micro comes bundled with Creative MediaSource?, an easy to
use music application that converts CD collections into a digital music library,
organizes and manages digital music, and seamlessly transfers tracks to any of
Creatives portable music players.
