Creative Zen Neeon 2

By Richard Menta 8/20/06

Now that Apple has effectively stolen the nano name for its iPod (the Creative Zen nano appeared over a year before the iPod) Creative is reduced to mis-spelling other words. Enter the second version of the Neeon, aimed squarely at the iPod nano.

The Zen Neeon 2 comes in 1GB ($125), 2GB ($170), and 4GB ($190) flavors, a small color display and a footprint roughly the same as the iPod nano. The Neeon 2 also offers the FM Tuner, audio-in record and voice recorder most iPod competitors offer. As is the case, Creative usually excellent players are often the better buy over the iPod line - unless you have been building that collection of iTunes tracks.
