The finish on Creative's Zen Stone reminds one of the polished black rocks they sell kids at various museums and tourist traps. This screenless little wonder is just a little larger than the iPod Shuffle, but Creative will offer the 1GB player for about half the price. Selling for $39.99, the Zen Stone will handle MP3 and WMA files and come in six colors: black, white, red, blue, pink and green. Drag and drop file transfers and 10 hr battery life round out the feature set. A tiny speaker system for the player dubbed the TravelSound Zen Stone will appear in July.
