the new ZEN will also be Creative's first wireless player and will have a unique nine-point directional pad to take advantage of integrated Wi-Fi: users will have the option of instant messaging on Windows Live or Yahoo Messenger with a phone-style system for typing without either a touchscreen or a full QWERTY keyboard.
Just give up already Creative

Phone style system for typing? Rotary?
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

Why should they give up? I would like to see the UI first.

A colleague of mine had a new Creative Zen up until this morning.

Really nice little device; very slick, nice display.

Except it kept crashing when playing back certain mp3 files that played just fine on several iPods and other mp3 players, and then got stuck in a reboot-crash-loop that wouldn't end until the device was completely reset from the computer.

So he brought it back after ten days for a refund.

for kids who love txting this might not even be that bad... but I wouldn't buy it.
