Creative Zen Mozaic

By Richard Menta 7/28/08

As summer reaches the halfway point, DAP vendors are starting to unveil the portables that will line shelves come Christmas. The Zen Mozaic is Creative's latest personal media player, sporting a 1.8in TFT color screen and a built-in speaker. From there it is just a simple portable with the usual FM tuner plus the MP3/ DRM'd WMA combo. Considering yet another store using Microsoft's old WMA codec, Yahoo Music, just announced they are closing their music store (and thus all those files using WMA's digital rights management scheme will cease to function) it is a wonder so many players still support Microsoft's dead format. Anyway, the Zen Mozaic also handles JPEG, BMP, TIFF, GIF and PNG photos and AVI video. 2GB, 4GB and 8GB models will ship in early August and a 16GB player will appear by the fall.
