Creative announced on their Japan site a modest refresh to their Zen Vision line of personal media players that trim a bit of girth from them. Both the Zen Vision M and the Zen Vision W will become thinner, but otherwise keep their other dimensions. The Creative Zen Vision W shrinks from 5.27" x 2.95" x 1.04" to a leaner 5.27" x 2.95" x 0.86". The Zen Vision W also drops from 10.5 oz to 9.9 oz while holding 60GB of capacity.
The Zen Vision M also keeps its original length and width, dropping its girth from 0.87" to 0.74". The bigger news here is the more dramatic weight drop from 8.43 oz to 6 ounces, while also running a 60GB drive. Abarring further announcements of newer features, these players are still essentially the same as the previous versions.
