Creative Zen Krystal
There's a new Creative Zenith in the market

Apparently its called a Creative Zen Crystal and its 4GB

Does anyone have any information on this new player?

You can play mp3s and games on it

BobbyRS 07-15-2008 12:19 PM

Maybe a Zen Crystal.........Clear Case for a 4GB Zen. :) Any links to the source?

Nope not a case

My dad said the guy at creative hk showed him a new player

Its called a Creative Zenith Krystal^^.

Im sure it'll be coming soon and you'll have to write a review on it.^^

Yes, there's another new Creative player coming soon... but do you mean Creative's "Crystalizer" compressor/EQ/marketing-stunt, which is already used on the new Zen X-Fi?

salami 07-15-2008 07:14 PM


No not a marketing stunt or anything.The player is actually called a zenith krystal

Its suppose to be the next model after Zen Stone and it has 1 color .It is blue

Maybe it'll be announce soon

ZenChick 07-16-2008 04:39 PM

Let us know if you find a link for it.

Moving this to the root Creative forum.

salami 07-17-2008 02:49 AM

Found a link


BobbyRS 07-17-2008 08:12 AM

Yeah, I saw that just last night. It seems to only be on the HK site as of yet. No Zenith, but still Zen as the name..... I can't believe they called it Krystal. lol :) Anyway, I wonder how good the games will be on only a single color 64x64 display.

dfkt 07-17-2008 08:15 AM

64x64 should be fine for Pong... ;)

BTW, it's already on the front page: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...en-krystal.php

Is it just me, or does it look VERY similar to the Sansa Clip?

The DarkSide 07-17-2008 08:37 AM

Hey, that'd be great for me to go jogging with - can't wait to see if it hits the US!!!

BobbyRS 07-17-2008 08:41 AM

Yeah, maybe tic tac toe. :D

It looks just like the Stone just with a different display and turned vertically.

If this is available cheaply I'll get it as my workout player. Looks a lot more useful than that X-Fi and its useless WiFi features.

musichound 07-17-2008 10:02 AM

Like I stated in my news comment, with all the sports features, why in the world didn't they just call it the Zen Sport?

BobbyRS 07-17-2008 10:35 AM

Well, the naming theme does go along with the Zen Stone. It's there preference I guess.

Didn't realize on the theme until you brought it to my attention. So going on this theme, if Creative comes out with an even smaller player, I think the Zen Pebble would be a good fit. :)

BobbyRS 07-17-2008 11:10 AM

I'm still wondering..... why spell it Krystal instead of Crystal though. It's not like they spelled Stone like Ctone. :)

salami 07-17-2008 11:37 AM


But the word krystal makes it sound more well merrier and unqie
CTone would just sound strange

My dad forgotten to ask the price but I'm sure the price will be up by next week

BobbyRS 07-17-2008 11:48 AM

Creative's naming conventions for their players are from unique and usually end up more on the side of confusing. So, i guess in a way this fits. :)

Anyone do a google search on Zen Krystal yet? lol

Edit: Nevermind. Now that ABI broke the news, many sites are breaking the news. The results of Krystal were interesting before this happened. :)

salami 07-17-2008 12:22 PM

You should feel honoured.I was the first to break the news and I chose this forum^^

I'm still trying to save money to buy zen x-fi

Im going to guess the player will be $1598HK

ZenChick 07-17-2008 01:22 PM

That thing looks like a cross between the V and the Stone Plus. I wonder if it's going to be an Asia-only item, or if they're planning worldwide release. It doesn't really fit into the grand scheme of things, as it effectively duplicates the Stone Plus, but - that's Creative for ya. :rolleyes:

For the Krystal? That would be insanely expensive! About HK$580 would be a bit more reasonable.
