Creative today announced the NOMAD® MuVo® TX digital audio
player that features an ultra fast USB 2.0 connectivity and longer continuous

scroller button. With the built-in microphone, users can also record over 32
hours of live audio—use it to record quick reminders, hours of notes, lectures
and conversations. The 512MB NOMAD MuVo TX can hold up to 350 floppies worth of
data. True to Creative’s rich audio heritage, the NOMAD MuVo TX boasts superior
audio quality with a signal-to-noise ratio greater than 90dB—incredible sound
quality that rivals players many times its size. The NOMAD MuVo TX can play
uninterrupted high-quality music for up to 15 hours (on MP3 format) on just one

“With the launch of the NOMAD MuVo TX Creative again raises
the bar for flash-based MP3 players,” said Sim Wong Hoo, chairman and CEO of
Creative Technology Ltd. “The original NOMAD MuVo forever changed the MP3 player
category. Now we’re expanding our award-winning NOMAD MuVo line with the NOMAD
MuVo TX, which features USB 2.0 so that many hours of music can be transferred
in seconds.”

The blue, backlit LCD on the NOMAD MuVo TX displays full song
information from ID3 tags and shows track number, play time, play mode and EQ
setting. It’s easy to select favorite songs and set play modes, such as Shuffle
and Resume, with the scroller button. With the built-in microphone, users can

of notes, lectures and conversations.

Like the original NOMAD MuVo family of MP3 players, the NOMAD
MuVo TX does not require cables and conveniently doubles as a USB flash drive.
Just slide the player apart, plug it directly into the computer’s USB port, and
it will be automatically recognized as a removable drive. Users can transfer any
file type from their PC onto the NOMAD MuVo TX and vice versa with simple drag
and drop functionality. The 512MB NOMAD MuVo TX can hold up to 350 floppies
worth of data.

MuVo TX can play uninterrupted high-quality music for up to 15 hours (on MP3

Although the NOMAD MuVo TX does not require software, the
player comes bundled with Creative MediaSource™ software for consumers who may
have never used MP3 or WMA files before. Creative MediaSource is a full MP3 and
WMA ripping and organizing application with a fresh, clean interface. It also
includes everything needed to convert a CD collection into a portable digital
library that can be transferred easily to the NOMAD MuVo TX and taken wherever
one goes.
