Creative Zen Style M100 and M300: A Certain iPod?

[NEW GADGET] No surprise when Creative Zen M100 and 300 is announced a couple of days back. Well these media players just look like similar to the Apple iPod Nano. Except that the M100 and M300 are much cheaper and comes with MicroSD slot.

But it has to be said that these latest media player from Creative looks really classy and modern, quite one of the best from Creative in a long time. If I would have to get a really small music player now, this is it (subjected to audio quality, but Creative shouldn’t disappoint too much in that area).

The differences between M100 and M300 are Bluetooth and FM Radio, both missing in M100.
