We talked about the Creative Zen X-Fi Portable Media Player a couple of weeks ago and it has now gone on sale in the states. The Zen X-Fi media player does more than just play your music and movies. The device is Wi-Fi equipped (in the two higher-end models), but not crippled like the Zune, and allows you to connect and instant message your friends via Yahoo! or MSN Messenger. You can also use the Wi-Fi access to wirelessly stream your media.
The device comes in 3 versions, but only the 16 and 32GB models are currently shipping and the 8GB version coming “later this month.” They sell for $199 and $279.99 respectively and you can grab either one off of Amazon today.
