This summer, Creative's releasing its latest weapon in the war on the iPod's ubiquity: the nano-sized Zen V Plus, and CNet was lucky enough to get one early and write up a detailed review of it. And would you believe it, it looks like the plucky little Zen might just top the nano in terms of features. Noting its cute little design that still gives you plenty of screen size (for the built-in video capabilities, of course), they go on to say that other than a couple of small gripes about the small joystick, it's a home run. One cool feature that the Zen has that isn't found on any Apple players is a line-in jack, allowing you to record directly to the device without the aid of a computer. You also get an FM tuner and your standard music playback, of course, all in an armband-sized player destined for the sweaty limbs of gym rats everywhere. The Zen V Plus will be available soon in three flavors: 1 GB for $130, 2 GB for $170, and the 4GB for $230.
