Provided that the $399 price tag doesn't scare you away, Creative's new Zen Vista media player could be the device that dethrones the iPod.
Offering video playback, it delivers what users shouldn't expect from Apple until at least 2006. Creative even came out with a black and white model to cater to users who expect their portable devices to be white.
The device might have to compete with Sony's PSP to keep the kids quiet during long trips, it has great potential with the crowd of heavy travellers who waste away their lives in airplanes and are fed up with those awful Adam Sandler movies.
Throw in an address book, calendar and to-do list that synchronise with Outlook, and I know it offers 99 per cent of the features that I use in a PDA today.
I'll wait until the reviews come in, but the Zen Vista could very well replace the iPod under this year's Christmas tree as the "must have" device.
