Creative has given in to the gossip merchants and announced official details of its new widescreen Vision device, which sports a huge 4.3in screen.

The Zen Vision W has shown its face for the first time on the company’s Singapore site, which confirms the Archos-botherer will be available in 30GB and 60GB versions.

The 480x272 pixel, 16:9 widescreen improves massively on its predecessor’s 3.7in affair, although that’s the only real difference between the two. Like the old version, it packs an FM radio, voice recorder and support for MPEG-1, 2 and 4, DivX and Xvid files.

Connectivity is also identical, with a TV-out for hooking it up to a projector or TV, and a 4.5-hour battery which should last you a couple of flicks. We’ll have more news on UK pricing for you tomorrow.
