CES 2014 - Kingston displayed a prototype of a new type of USB flash drive for mobile phones. A study concluded that the maajority of phone users actually email pictures from thier phones to transfeer them to thier PC or laptop.




The concept is pretty simpe, one end of the USB drive connects to the micro-USB connector on the phone, allowing quick and easy access to the contents of the drive.




The other end of the drive is a standard USB 3.0 connector, which can be plugged into any typical laptop or computer. This allows the user to add or remove files on the computer, and then one can transfer files to or from the phone easily.




Amazingly, this tiny drive can hold up to 32GB of data! We weren't able to get a concrete release date, but with a working version tested right in front of us, we would imagine it will be available soon.
