Behold the first pictures of the Zune 2 and the Zune flash- a welcome improvement, I think we’d all agree. In addition to a much more flattering form, there will be a 80 GB Zune 2 Version, and the Zune Flash (the soon to be rival to the iPod nano) will be available in 4 or 8 GB. My only gripe is with the oddly designed button in the middle. I’ll have to wait and see how that plays out.
PQI has suceeded in creating the world’s thinnest flash drive, the U510.
The U510 is only 3 mm thick, and is no bigger than the size of a credit card! And you might think that something so small can also only hold a little memroy- but no, this little guy can hold up to 16 gb of storage. This flash drive has a retractable cord that connects to your computer via a USB 2.0 port, and is compatible with both Windows and Macs.
If you’ve ever wanted a better indicator to the status of your flash drive, Flashbag happily poofs up the more files you stick in him. To quote their page:
The size of the device changes depending on the amount of data it holds. When the device is about to blow up you will see the familiar error message on your screen: “There is not enough free space”. When swithched off the flashbag remains pumped up, so you can estimate with the naked eye how much more pics, books and music albums can be transferred into it.
Unfortunately, it seems to me that this would be greatly inconvenient to carry around:
The extra size is so cute, like a balloon flash drive, but would get stuck on all the other gadgets in the inside of your purse. Luckily for us, it’s just a mockup. Otherwise, I’d have to buy one right now!
BUSlink, apparently, has up to 64 gigabytes of storage on their USB 2.0 Flash Drives.
You can pick up one for a mere price of $5000. This flash drive also comes in 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, 8 gb, 16gb, and 32gb capacities for prices ranging from $80 – $2500.
Creative is now offering the Zen Neeon- in flash! The memory capacities are 512 mb, 1 gb, or 2 gb, and the previously monochrome screen is now a small OLED screen (two tones of colour). The Zen Neeon also has 32 hours of battery.
And to spruce up your Zen Neeon, you can add Zen Neeon Stik-ons!
