First Creative introduced the Zen Stone, which gave the user a gigabyte of space for thirty bucks. Then came the Creative Zen Stone Plus for those who wanted a display with their still spartan unit. Now that the holiday season is behind us Creative will offer both models with a speaker added for those who wish to share their tunes with others.
The Creative Zen Stone with Speaker retails for $49.95 and offers 2GB of storage. Another ten dollars gets you the Zen Stone Plus with Speaker, which adds the aformentioned display, a stopwatch, and an FM tuner. The Zen Stone Plus also adds AAC support for those non-protected iTunes acquisitions.
