February 13, 2008 Kingston Technology has announced the DataTraveler Micro Reader, a USB Flash drive with a storage capacity of up to 4GB and an expansion slot for microSD, microSDHC and Memory Stick Micro cards.
The all-in-one USB Flash drive can store, transfer and read content on mobile memory cards – and a drag and drop function makes the process even simpler with mobile phones that utilize microSD, microSDHC or Memory Stick Micro (M2) memory cards.
The DataTraveler Micro Reader is enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost and is available in three capacities later this month - a USD$19.25 1GB model, a $28.25 2GB model, and a $42 4GB model.
“As mobile phones perform more sophisticated functions, carving a greater place in the lives of mobile consumers, Kingston is developing faster speed/larger capacity cards and versatile USB/card/device readers to help users get the most out of their devices,” said Jean Wong, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. “We believe the DT Micro Reader will be well received by the mobile community as a smart single-solution to navigate the plethora of devices and card formats on the market today.”
