Creative Introduces an Entirely New Category of iPod Speakers - the Pocket-Sized Creative TravelSound

Compact, Lightweight TravelSound for iPod nano is Small Enough to Fit in the Palm of Your Hand with Sound Big Enough to Fill a Room

SINGAPORE - March 26, 2008 - Creative Technology Ltd., a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, today announced an entirely new category of iPod speakers with the Creative TravelSound for iPod nano (3rd Generation). The first one-piece iPod nano speaker portable enough to fit in a pocket or purse, the Creative TravelSound (model i80) for iPod nano delivers surprisingly powerful sound for such a small speaker.

The secret behind the outstanding sound quality of the Creative TravelSound for iPod nano lies in its unique design. Featuring four independent micro drivers and a digital amplifier, the Creative TravelSound for iPod nano delivers far more volume and clarity than much larger speakers.

The Creative TravelSound for iPod nano features a rechargeable battery so you can charge it through your USB connection for up to 15 hours of playback - enough to enjoy your music for a full day at the beach. Connecting via USB to your Mac or PC also syncs the iPod to iTunes for easy management of playlists and transferring of video and photos.

“The Creative TravelSound for iPod nano is the first iPod nano speaker that is actually as portable as the iPod itself. You can take it anywhere you would take your iPod, so you can share your music and videos without having to share your earphones,” said Joseph Liow, General Manager of Creative Labs Asia. “Plus, the sleek design complements the look of the iPod nano, so the speaker looks as good as it sounds.”

The Creative TravelSound (model i80) for iPod nano is certified by Apple for the Made for iPod programme and is available at The CREATIVE Stores at Marina Square, Plaza Singapura and International Business Park, the online store at sg.store.creative.com and authorised dealers in Singapore in early April 2008 for S$129.00.
