Branded by its makers as cute, and promising to inject a sense of style and fun into the storage world, is the new Micro-Mini USB 2.0 drive from Iomega. Available now in 64MB and 128MB capacities, it is targeted at teenagers who want to share and save photos, games, brief video clips and other large files. Faster than Iomega’s original Mini-Drive, the Micro-Mini can now transfer files at up to 8Mbps. Weighing only 9gm, Iomega said the device could easily be worn or carried. Iomega has also redesigned its Mini USB 2.0 Drive, claiming nine times the performance of competing USB key drives. Aimed at the mobile professional market, it comes in 128MB, 256MB and 512MB capacities. Both drives are distributed through Tech Pacific and Ingram Micro.
RRP: 128MB — $99; 256MB — $179; 512MB — $299
