Creative Zen Neeon 2 - Too Little, Too Late?

Available in 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB capacities, the newest Neeons clearly have their sights set on the nano, stepping it up with video on a 128 x 128, 1.5-inch display. Like the Iaudio 6 below, you're also getting an FM radio, voice recorder, and line-in audio capture, plus a very nice 8 hour video bettery life, and respectable 20 hour audio life.

When these Neeons drops in fall, they'll go for $125, $170, or $190, depending on capacity -- not a bad deal, especially for those folks who like personalizing their players with Creative's swappable skins. But with the new nano and sansa dropping this fall and sporting 8GB Flash drives, double the Neeons top capacity, one can't help but think this DAP is too little, too late.
