Creative Zen Moo: the cow-shaped music player

Holy cow: the Moo comes in a range of different colours.

What do you buy the bovine-loving music fan for Christmas? This year, the smart money's on Creative's Zen Moo music player.

Based on the same architecture as the Zen Stone, this 'fun' device contains 2GB of memory, comes with an FM radio and has a playback time of up to 20 hours (MP3 and WMA formats are supported). It also works as a voice recorder and an alarm clock.

Most importantly, though, it's designed to look a bit like a cow.

Apparently, it's being released to celebrate the Chinese New Year - 2009 will be the year of the ox. This being the case, we're not yet sure whether it'll be available outside of China (where it was announced).

Assuming the Zen Moo does get the worldwide launch it so obviously deserves, we'd suggest plugging it into these.
