The new unit comes with a 5GB hard drive and includes and FM radio. According to Creative says the rechargeable battery will last for 14 hours. The MuVo2 FM will sell for about ¥26,800 (US$245), but the company has not commented on US availability. “Creative isn’t alone in attempting to take on the iPod Mini,” notes the story. “Fellow MP3 player maker Rio Audio this week began shipping its 5GB Rio Carbon, and European PC provider Packard Bell is preparing a 5GB model of its own.”
