There's a review of Creative Labs Zen Nomad mp3 player in the Globe and Mail. The review is quite positive but has some errors. The reviewer gets the size comparison with the new iPod wrong. The ease of use is completely bananas compared with iTunes. The RAM buffer is only 16 Mb (vs 32 for the iPod). The cold boot time (get this....) is 30 seconds, versus 2 secs for the iPod (although if you've used it in the last 24 hours you can wake it from sleep). And it is kinda ugly (but that's a matter of taste). No wonder Apple has sold a million iPods (the Soho, NY store sells 100 a day).
