PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We've talked about Creative's brand-new Stemcell computing platform before. They developed a new processor, the ZMS-05, which consists of two ARM-926 cores, and 48 programmable 'processing elements' which can develop in real-time into performing any of the specialised acceleration functions needed by modern computing. In addition, the system-on-chips, called Zii, could be linked together freely, achieving teraflop speeds on a sheet of A4 paper. Back then, they claimed that a Zii could easily playback HD content (even on HDTVs). They put the Zii in a iPod Touch-like device, and their promises turned out to be true.

The Zii is available in Germany, Spain, UK and Italy. Where is France you ask?

The sales support just answered: "We encourage you to check our website for the latest list of countries for delivery."

This time Creative is creative, but they still have some issues with geography. I encourage them to continue working on good hardware and fire the support team ;)
