Word from Super Talent today has it they've finished development of their new PICO USB Flash Drive family which are now being mass-produced.
The interesting thing about these particular flash drives is that because they use COB (chip-on-board) technology they are able to fit a lot more flash storage into a much smaller/slimmer casing. Capacities in the family range from 1GB to 4GB with dimensions of just 38.7mm x 12.4mm x 3.9mm, weighing less than 5 grams.
As well as being very small, they are also rather attractive with their polished chrome exterior and come with either a swivel lid design or as a retractable slide-open drive.
Approximate pricing on the 2GB and 4GB models is said to be in the vicinity of $25 and $45 respectively.
"We designed PICO USB drives to be small, stylish and smart looking", commented Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James. "PICO drives bring new levels of smallness and elegance to USB storage, making these drives more like a fashion accessory than a computer peripheral", added Mr. James.
