Kingston releases 'world's smallest USB Flash device'14 December 2011 16:01:50
The growing importance of backing up data on to SD cards, USB devices and other storage media is meaning that many technology firms are continuing to produce even more innovative designs.
Kingston has become the latest memory manufacturer to announce an addition to its range of storage media.
The organisation said that its new DataTraveler Micro is one of the world's smallest USB Flash drives.
Kingston stated that the idea behind the design is to allow the stick to be left in tablet devices and slim notebooks while people use them, so they do not suffer any decline in mobility.
The company believes that this will allow users to increase the storage space available to many computer users without increasing the "footprint" of their device.
DataTraveler Micro is available in both 8GB and 16GB capacities, but those who want more storage could opt for the larger Kingston 128GB DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 USB Flash Drive, which utilises the same technologies, but is eight times larger.
