Eric Sofge of Popular Mechanics gives us another look at the Creative Zen Stone. This $39 MP3 player supports MP3, WMA, WMA DRM, WAV, and Audible 2 and 3. Video after the jump.

The Shuffle still has a few advantages, like an integrated clip on the back, 12 hours of battery life (the Stone has 10) and a case that’s less prone to scratches. But can you really argue with $40 for a 1GB player that’s small enough to comfortably smuggle into prison?
