Creative recently announced at its Annual General Meeting, that they will be launching a e-book reader, the Creative Zii MediaBook.
The Creative Zii MediaBook will feature a touchscreen display, and will have a built in text to speech function, plus a memory card slot, and it will run on Creative’s Zii technology.
Creative is already a late comer to the already crowded e-book market with products like Amazon’s Kindle, Sony’s e-reader and Barnes & Noble’s Nook. But Creative hopes to differentiate itself by providing more than what the current e-books can offer. Describing the Kindle as “just another electronic device which displays books in text”, the Creative’s e-book will harness “videos, pictures, text and services in one device that supports a media-rich experience.” said Mr Willie Png, Creative’s VP of strategic business.
There are no details as yet on the exact specification of the Creative Zii MediaBook, or when we are likely to see it in the stores.
