Creative has gone the way of the iPod nano with the launch of a new range of high-capacity, skip-free flash memory-based Zen Neeons.

The three new players will come in 512MB, 1GB and 2GB versions and sport duo-tone OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) screens.

Accompanying the launch of these flash memory-based models is a new 6GB hard drive-based model which stores up to 3000 songs, as well as a new range of Creative Stik-On decorative skins that include 12 limited edition "Face" series Stik-On skins and 16 new designs that fall under four thematic categories labelled "Bold", "Classic", "Gutsy" and "Chic".

As with their 5GB predecessor (launched in May 2005), each new Zen Neeon model features an integrated FM radio/recorder and voice recorder and direct line-in recording from CD/DVD players, turntables, and cassette tape players.

The new players - that measure just 79.9mm x 46.9mm x 15.9mm and weight 55grams will come with a re-chargeable Li-ion battery delivering 32 hours of continuous playback per charge

The Zen Neeon 6GB will offer 16 hours of playback and weight 75 grams.
