The new Stone Plus will have the same feature set, interface and basic look but will now play nice with iTunes Plus’ AACs, as well as the other iTunes DRM’d tunes. Huzzah.
The update also promises better battery life and at £70 for the 4GB and £100 for the 8GB, nicely undercuts the Nano in price. Amazon has them on sale now but no mention at the Creative site as yet.
Still no video, though and no change to the screen size or weight so the Nano retains its thindividuality.
But in terms of pound per GB, Creative has delivered quite a nasty rabbit punch to the Shuffle with its buffed up new Stone.
