The images hint that Creative will release a Zii Egg for developers and a plain Zii for consumers, and that both devices will feature HD cameras and a form factor much like that of the iPhone and iPod touch. As epiZENter.net points out, the presence of a developer edition suggests Creative might encourage third parties to write software for the device.
