Creative's response to Apple's iPod Shuffle is the Zen Stone. A tiny device that holds 1GB of storage and comes in a variety of colors. The Zen Stone is a bit heavier than the shuffle (0.88 ounces versus 0.55 ounces), and is also bigger - the zen stone dimensions: 2.1 inches x 1.4 inches x 0.5 inches. However at the price point ($39), it's half the price of the similarly spec'd iPod Shuffle. The playback features are standard and include single song repeat, ordered playlist, and random.
Note: It does not have a built-in clip, however Creative created different carrying devices for the Zen Stone including a keychain, clip or armband (which can be purchased separately)
