Creative has announced the launch of a new small MP3 player with built in photo and video player with built-in FM radio.

Called the ZEN V Plus, the player will be available in August with the 4GB model in glossy black with blue accents, the 2GB model in glossy black with green accents, and the 1GB model in glossy black with orange accents.

The player is so small that Creative is boasting that the player is so small it will fit in the coin pocket of a pair of jeans.

“We developed the ZEN V Plus with a look and a user experience that create the true feeling of ZEN. Photos and videos and our patented ZEN user interface look so vivid on the stunning colour screen and the sound quality is awesome, it’s surprising for such a tiny player”, says Sim Wing Hoo, chairman and CEO of Creative.

Other features include a 1.5-inch OLED screen for stunning video, photos and album art, a built-in FM radio with 32 station presets and support for music subscription services such as Napster To Go and Audible audio books.

It also includes a line-in port for direct recording from a CD player or other audio device, and a voice recorder for capturing notes on the go.

Creative has also introduced the ZEN V, with all of the features of the ZEN V Plus except video and FM playback. Also available in August the Zen V 4GB model will be glossy black with blue accents, the 2GB model in glossy black with green accents and the 1GB model in glossy black with orange accents.

Creative have told Pocket-lint that the price points will compete directly with the iPod Nano.
