Kingston releases bunch of USB drives

With U3 competing "Migo" tech
Mon Mar 05 2007, 06:33
KINGSTON RELEASED a line of USB sticks. Under the name DataTraveler Mini, the company has made some of the smallest USB sticks on the market, while at the same time it boasts licensed tech from Migo Software.

The sticks are available in 512MB, 1GB and 2GB capacities, but we would not recommend you to even think about using Migo tech unless you opt for the 2GB size. The tech itself is a simple concept, and reminds us of U3 which came with a lot of SanDisk USB sticks - the idea is to have your data on every PC you use, which is useful if your notebook has a dead battery and you need to complete work. This software is bundled on the stick itself and leaves no trace on the host computer after the drive is removed.

That's not all - Kingston also bundled some games, The Atlantis and Magic Vines. The software and data will be automatically updated once connected to a host computer - all in all, a neat package from Kingston. Given the size of the device, you can keep it in your wallet, or with your small change.

Yes, it can go smaller, but this is smallest ""

This two gig stick retails for £14.40, while the smaller capacity will set you back for £7.20 (1GB) or £5.75 (512MB). µ
