Creative Zii is Real and Final
I know there's already been a thread regarding the pre-release notions of the Zii. Just wanted to start a new one with the final details of the Zii Egg.
Anyways, I know it may look and feel a lot like an iTouch, but I just want to highlight some noticeable features of the Zii Egg which will definitely make it overthrow the iTouch and other iPOD devices.
Best features (I think) over iTouch:
-a version of Android optimized for the Zii chip
-Plaszma development kit (open-source OS with C++ support (compared to Google Android's Java)
-Zii chip (fast Creative stem-cell computing)
-Creative's X-fi Sound Enhancement Technology
-SDHDC Slot (32GB built-in+32GB SD=64GB)
-Dual cameras (HD and VGA)
-built-in speaker and microphone
Best part is that this device is starting off with a retail price of $199USD (cheaper than the cheapest iTouch).
