 worldwide and U.S. flash and HDD-based portable media player shipments.
     "Shipment of 25 million MP3 players marks a major milestone in Creative
 history, as our player unit volume exceeds the combined unit sales from
 some of the biggest names in consumer electronics," said Sim Wong Hoo,
 chairman and CEO of Creative. "We believe that we now have our strongest
 lineup of MP3 and portable media players ever, as we continue to innovate
