Flash USB Drive Australia will showcase its latest portable storage product, a 1GB Flash USB Drive, at the IT Comdex trade show next month. The tiny device simply plugs into the USB drive of a notebook or desktop and can be used to transfer or store big files. Unlike older external drives, the Flash USB drive does not need its own power source or special software or drivers. It also includes a write-protection switch to guard against accidental data erasure and can be used in Windows, Mac and Linux operating environments. The drive comes in 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB versions and prices range from $99 for the 16MB drive through to $2365 for the 1GB device.
