SANDISK “U3 SMART” FLASH DRIVE
SanDisk have introduced its first USB smart drive using U3 technology, a powerful new platform that enables users to store and manage their “personal workspace” — including files, programs, passwords and settings — on a tiny device the size of a pack of gum.
SanDisk Cruzer Micro smart drives will offer a private, securely protected experience on any PC with Microsoft Windows XP or 2000 without leaving the user’s personal information on the host machine at the end of a session when the drive is removed. Cruzer Micro capacities are large enough to accommodate numerous U3 smart software programs as well as large files such as music, digital images, charts, graphics presentations and word documents.
SanDisk Cruzer Micro smart drives will be shipped with a number of pre-installed programs, including CruzerSync, which synchronizes the user’s Outlook email, attachments, calendar, contacts and personal documents on the device, and allows users to edit, send and receive emails from any PC even if Outlook is not pre-installed on it. Other programs are also available for download.
SanDisk Cruzer Micro smart drives with U3 technology, will be available in the US from October, and international markets from the first quarter of 2006, in capacities of 512 megabytes and 1 gigabyte. Suggested retail prices are US $54.99 and US $99.99, respectively.
