Creative Drops Zen Stone Plus, Doesn't Crush Foot

Illustration for article titled Creative Drops Zen Stone Plus, Doesnt Crush Foot

Weighing much less than a stone, the Zen Stone Plus updates the Zen Stone with twice as much storage (2GB vs. 1GB), a blue OLED screen (cheers at being able to see), more format compatibility, FM Tuner, and half an hour less battery life.

It's only been a month and a half since Creative introduced the Zen Stone, so we know either the first version wasn't selling well, or the second version wasn't ready in time to get out the door by May. Why they didn't just wait until now to do things right is anyone's guess.

Yeah, I find it cute too.

Anyways, maybe their odd releases were a marketing scheme?

"Heck, we have two products. Product A and B, they're the same thing but B is slightly better than A. Why not distribute product A to give them a taste, then release product B a short while after. That way, people who have bought A would realize it's faults, still liking the overall product, and be persuaded to buy B.

And what to do with product A? Since B will be released, A's price will drop. But who said it'll drop from it's original price? We released it with a price greater than supposed to. So now people will buy product A at a higher rate; seeing that A and B are similar yet A is cheaper by a lot, without us losing significant profit "

Jee that was long, I think I found my explanation quite incoherent.
