Creative Lab’s new Nomad MuVo2 portable audio player features Hitachi Global Storage Technologies’ 4GB Microdrive digital media. The Hitachi-Creative alliance means the 2.6 x 2.6-inch digital music audio player can store up 2100 songs — that is more than 14 hours of continuous music playback. It comes bundled with the newly released Creative MediaSource application which lets users convert CDs to MP3s or WMAs at the touch of a button. The device works as a USB flash drive with any PC, using the USB 2.0 interface for faster file transfer. The MuVo 2 supports playlists created on the PC and offers full play mode control, including shuffle modes and a resume feature, making navigation easy.
