Verbatim Corporation unveiled its newest Store ‘n’ Go USB Drive based on 1-inch hard drive technology with up to 12GB of storage in a unit slightly larger than a standard USB flash drive. Designed to enable users to carry volumes of data, video and audio in a single portable unit; the new 12GB Store ‘n’ Go USB will have a projected street price of $179.
The new Store ‘n’ Go Drive makes it convenient to keep information such as emails, photos, personal calendars, presentations and video files available at all times. The sleek USB storage device comes pre-loaded with Mobile Launchpad, a utility for downloading applications that can be run directly from the Verbatim USB Drive. Mobile Launchpad also allows you to have complete access to personal files and data without loading the content on a guest system. For quick and immediate access, the drives can also be used in the familiar drag ‘n’ drop mode.
Providing a flip-out USB connector and USB extension cable, the unit is compact and boasts low power consumption. With the device, you can carry and access up to 12 hours of MPEG-1 video, about 6,000 300-DPI photos, 6 hours of DVD-quality video or tens of thousands of personal or business documents.
The drive is fully compatible with Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, CE 3.0 and higher; Mac OS 9X and higher; Linux 2.40 and higher systems. Mobile Launchpad is compatible with 98SE, ME, 2000, XP and higher systems. The complete package includes a travel wallet, USB extension cable and a quick start user’s guide.
