Creative's s 60GB Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra offers form and function

Gizmodo caught the leak and shared it. So will we. CREATIVE has announced the s 60GB Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra portable MP3 player. And it looks like we finally may have a PC competitor to Apple's iPod.

The Nomad, can store up to 16,000 WMA or MP3 songs and uses AudioSync to synch up with with your a PC. And though it relies on USB2.0 port rather than firewire, it can still transfer a song a second (that's up to a little over 4 hours to download to it's max capacity for all you math geeks). It can also transfer via USB1.1.

The Nomad also comes with a large, hi-res blue backlit LCD and advanced features such as Quick Scroller Navigation, Find, Playlist Creation and something called "automatic ID3 tag categorization" for managing and organizing your music.

It also doubles as an external hard drive for storing photos, documents and other data files. Users can "drag and drop" data files into the data folder or music files into the music library using Explorer.

List price: between $299.99-$399.99 depending on if you want the 30GIG or 60GIG version.
