Creative D100 and D200 Outed for Your Wireless Pleasure

Creative D100 and D200 Outed for Your Wireless Pleasure

There's something to be said about going wireless. It's a lifestyle we can't wait to embrace, and these speakers are going to help us get there. Well, they would be if we were in Singapore, that is. Creative have just pulled the curtain off their D100 and D200 wireless speakers, and we're hoping just as much as the company itself that they'll help "usher in a new era in pure music listening." We're not even sure what that means, exactly, but we're excited about it nonetheless.

Creative Zii building steam? New 3G Dev board & peripherals; Android support by March

Creative have been talking up their Zii platform for quite some time now - the HD-capable system first showed up at CES 2009, and then more recently sprouted a smartphone reference design in December last year - but beyond the initial developer device there's little to show from the whole project.  Over at epiZENter, however, they've spotted what could be some movement: the Creative site has gained a few new peripherals, including a development kit supporting 3G modules, and an insider has tipped Android customization for Zii as being on track for a March 2010 completion.

Creative unveils Sound Blaster Wireless Headset for World of Warcraft

When it comes to gaming geeks and MMORPG games, World of Warcraft is hands down the most popular game out there. The game has been around for a long time now, but it is still hugely popular and has a large enough following that gaming gear specifically for the game is a big market. Creative has unveiled a new wireless headset today with artwork from the game aimed at WoW fans.

ZiiLABS TRINITY demos 1080p HD skills [Video]

As video demos go we'd have preferred to see a little bit more of the ZiiLABS TRINITY smartphone, but a brief splash of the ZMS-05 based handset outputting 1080p High Definition video is not something to be sniffed at.  While the current TRINITY reference design has a proprietary docking connector on the bottom, Creative have already said that it's a simple matter to switch that to a mini HDMI and microUSB pair.

ZiiLABS TRINITY smartphone gets video demo

ZiiLABS' TRINITY is designed to draw the attention of smartphone lovers to the ZMS-05 platform, just like its ZiiEGG predecessor did for PMPs, and it seems to be doing a pretty good job.  Crave Asia grabbed some hands-on time with the smartphone - which is capable of 1080p HD video playback, has a 3.1-inch 800 x 480 OLED capacitive touchscreen and triband WCDMA/HSDPA connectivity - and came away reasonably impressed.

Creative ZiiSOUND D5 iPod speaker dock eschews anything ZiiLABS

Creative ZiiSOUND D5 iPod speaker dock eschews anything ZiiLABS

Looking for a guaranteed way to confuse press and customers alike, and dilute your new brand?  Creative have a good example: they've called their latest iPod speaker dock the ZiiSound, which you'd expect to thus include some of the clever ZiiLABS "StemCell Computing" magic they've been discussing this week.  Instead it's a bog-standard speaker dock, with nary a whiff of a Zii processor.

Zii TRINITY 3.5G ZMS-05 dev smartphone announced

As promised last month, the ZiiLABS team have revealed their first smartphone development platform, the Zii TRINITY, based on the company's StemCell ZMS-05 processor and throwing in quadband GSM and triband WCDMA/HSDPA.  As before, 1080p Full HD is supported together with accelerated OpenGL ES 3D graphics, while up front the TRINITY has a 3.1-inch 800 x 480 OLED capacitive touchscreen.  In the future, ZiiLABS say, there'll be a 4G version supporting the even higher-speed mobile networks.

The Zii TRINITY also squeezes in WiFi b/g, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera (plus a front-facing VGA camera for video calls), along with a microSD card slot.  Wired connectivity includes micro USB 2.0, mini HDMI and composite video output.  The battery is a 1,130mAh pack, and the TRINITY will run both Creative's own Plaszma OS or Google's Android platform.
