IOPlus Inc. is now shipping a GB PocketDisk that’s based on the design of the MB-sized units that were introduced in February.
With a price tag of US$349, the 1GB PocketDisk is aimed at the high-end user who needs a USB-based flash memory disk unit for transporting things such as a small network of files or presentations with graphics. The PocketDisk requires no batteries and offers password protection security for sensitive data.
What’s more, the unit has no moving parts and requires no driver. It’s compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x.
