Apple 20GB iPod M9282LL/A vs Creative Zen Touch 20GB

Here we have the 4th generation Apple 20GB iPod M9282LL/A matched up with the Creative Zen Touch 20GB MP3 player. Both have excellent interfaces so you can navigate the menus and songs with ease. However, the battery life of the Zen Touch is double that of the iPod. Because of the extra battery power, the Zen Touch is a bit heavier than the iPod.

Apple 20GB iPod M9282LL/A Description:

The iPod continues to define the perfect digital music player. The fabulous Apple Click Wheel that was first featured on the iPod mini is now available. Weighing it at just 5.3 ounces and slimmer than previous models, the iPod is easy to take with you on your travels. And offering up to 12 hours of battery life, you can play digital music all day long.

A musical dream come true, the fourth-generation iPod offers huge capacity. This 20GB M9282LL/A model in particular lets you easily slip up to 5,000 songs into your pocket. And enjoy it wherever you go. In the car. On the treadmill. At the office. Around the house.

In fact, the new fourth-generation iPod includes features that make it even easier to access -- and have fun with -- your music. Take, for example, the Apple Click Wheel. With the Click Wheel, you can select playlists, scroll through a long list of albums or artists and choose just the song you want to hear without ever lifting your thumb from the wheel. Feel like mixing things up? Now you can choose "Shuffle Songs" right from the main iPod menu. And with the 25 minutes of skip protection iPod provides, you can jump for joy and the music will keep playing.

Creative Zen Touch 20GB Description:

Turn up your music with the cool Zen Touch 20GB MP3 Player. The Zen Touch uses a touch-sensitive pad controller. Use it to navigate your music collection with astonishing ease and speed. Play all day and all night non-stop with the incredible 24 hour battery life. This 20GB model holds up to 10,000 WMA or 5,000 MP3 songs so your musical journey will never be cut short.
