The Creative Zii is an upcoming Portable Media Player as a followup to the Creative ZEN product family by Creative Technology. The device was revealed by U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filings in July 2009.
The Creative Zii was originally uncovered by Engadget on July 7, 2009. They uncovered an FCC filing with Zii and Zii EGG logos on a rectangular shaped product with a HD camera above it. The filings revealed connectivity through Wireless LAN and Bluetooth. Additionally, they revealed that the player would be touchscreen.
The Creative Zii is the consumer model, and the Zii EGG is the developers model. It is assumed that it will be powered by Zii Labs' ZMS-05 processor, which was revealed at CES 2009. Zii Labs is a wholly owned subsidiary of Creative Technology.
