After Apple bumped up its nano to 8GB we knew it wouldn't be too long till Creative did the same. Sure enough, the video-playing, tune-spinning, voice-recording, FM radio-equipped Zen V Plus has now had its top capacity doubled to the same amount.That equates to around 4,000 songs in something the size of a matchbox. Much better than 50 matches, we're sure you'll agree.As with the 1GB, 2GB and 4GB versions (pictured), the new model gets its own colour scheme: black and red. We're thinking noire satin sheets and red Ferraris. Or the bedroom colour scheme we always wanted, just twenty years too late.It's destined for Singapore first, so look out for it arriving here soon.
