We are so fixated with the “i” prefix that we rarely see anything beyond the Apple realm. Its designers like Li Qing who dares us to think beyond the “i” and open up our minds to the Zunes and Zens of the world. Featured here is not one but TWO ZEN MP3 player concepts: Grasp & Water. We love them for their fluid minimal look and intuitive design. The nano and Shuffle are nice but there are still some wonderfully designed options out there.
