    isn’t the T100 a mere copy of the shuffle 1G, with increased storage only plus some extra bass stuff? haha..im wondering what creative is doing, previously the zen stone copied the shuffle 2G, and now this..hmm, doesn’t seem creative to me!

    @Ian.

    Yea.. The industrial design is a blatant copy of the 1G shuffle. But I feel that this form factor has its advantages.

    Also, being a Creative player it supports more audio formats than the shuffles. And its cheaper.. :p

  • Many may be outraged at the copy, but I’m starting to think hey as long as it offers good features and an improvement to the physical design instead of a plain photostat, it should be able to hold its own.

    Sure looks like 1G Shuffle, but damn this chick sure is slicker. ^^

    Yea actually come to think abt it is a good marketing strategy, because people who have used the shuffle would know the benefits of a small form factor player and hence would more readily accept the MuVo T100 even though it looks suspiciously similar.

    I feel its as if Creative is telling Apple, hey we can do a better job than you can.

  • Not a very smart thing to say when you just kapoked their basic form factor. Probably they’re hoping our chain of thought would be like what was discussed on the show: hmm familiar -> shuffle copy -> but got bass boost & more formats -> nice.

    Maybe.

  • NTT

    Hahaha… Fari and Bass boost… :p

  • Ey what’s that supposed to mean huh? lol

  • ahmed
