Creative Zen Micro Photo released in the United States

It's here! And this time, I mean it. The Creative Zen Micro Photo is now available for preorder on Creative's U.S. Web site. Currently, the only model available is gray, but it appears the 8GB microdrive MP3 player will be released in the Micro's signature line of 10 colors: gray, black, white, pink, red, orange, green, light blue, dark blue, and purple. Also note the selling price of $250--the same as a 4GB iPod Nano--yet the Zen Micro Photo offers twice the capacity, eight more color options, an FM tuner, and subscription music support. Here's a spec recap:
