Creative previews Nomad MP3 player

Creative Technology today previewed its first MP3 player -- the Nomad -- to the Australian IT press in Sydney.

Due to be released in June, the Nomad will ship with 32MB of on-board memory with an optional 32MB flash memory card. Differing from other MP3 players on the market, the Nomad will include an FM radio tuner plus a built-in microphone that will allow users to record up to four hours of voice recordings, said a company spokesman at the launch.

The Nomad is closer to the size of a small radio tuner than a walkman, and features a sleek lightweight magnesium case. A docking station for the Nomad is provided for uploading and downloading files, while also recharging the player's AAA batteries. Also bundled with the Nomad is the Creative Digital Audio Center, a software program that allows users to "rip" (copy) songs from CDs into MP3 format.

A range of accessories including a car adaptor kit will be available for the Nomad also, said a spokesman.

The 32MB Nomad will be priced at $499 whilst the 64MB version will cost $599.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
