Creative Zii MediaBook Could Combine eBook And PMP Features

Details are sparse at the moment, but we do know this afternoon that Creative is hard at work on developing a "MediaBook" device that will combine video, pictures and text with what's being described as an eBook form factor.

Creative is also talking with publishers, a la Apple, although in their case the talks are primarily in Singapore, where they already have a number of e-learning initiatives.

Images were unavailable, although Engadget did manage to snag a source who snapped a blurry pic of the Creative UI reveal (pictured) earlier today. There will be a touchscreen, which would make this slate/tablet markedly different than an ebook like the Kindle, although somewhat similar to the Nook. That's all for now. [Epizenter via Engadget]
