SanDisk says it's started shipping its new Cruzer 'key chain' personal
storage device, "the world's first truly portable storage device with
removable flash memory cards". Cruzer - the only such portable device with
removable and upgradeable storage media - accommodates both Secure Digital
cards and MultiMediaCards, small-size flash cards with wide industry
support, promises SanDisk.
SanDisk retail product marketing manager Eric Bone says Cruzer lets users
take data, spreadsheets, presentations, images and music anywhere and, "When
you arrive at your destination, you can access the contents of Cruzer by
plugging it into a USB port on a PC or Macintosh."
Cruzers, with a security app which locks individual data files, will be sold
in capacities ranging from 32 to 256 Mb with prices probably going from
$49.99 to $199.99. "It is expected that the 128MB Cruzer will sell for
$99.99," says the company.
