SansDisk has introduced its smallest USB flash drive to U.S. and Canadian users.
The SansDisk Cruzer Blade is about the size of a standard paper clip and weighs about the same as a penny, that can fit on a key chain or mobile phone dongle.
Available in capacities ranging from 2 gigabytes (GB)(1) to 16GB, the SanDisk Cruzer Blade lets users take their digital content with them wherever they go. A 4GB drive can store 1,000 songs, 1,200 high-resolution photos, or 8 hours of 768kb/s video.
“At half the size of some other USB drives, our compact Cruzer Blade provides consumers with highly portable storage at a great value,” said Kent Perry, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk.
“The drive lets users transfer their digital data quickly between computers, and delivers a storage boost to devices such as netbooks that often need additional memory but are difficult to upgrade easily.”
The Cruzer Blade USB flash drive is available in the U.S. and Canada for $14.99 to $77.99. The dirve carries a two year limited warranty.
