Hard disk manufacturer Western Digital on Wednesday announced its USB 2.0 WD Passport Pocket Drive. Measuring as small as a matchbox, the Passport Pocket Drive stores up to 6GB of data. The drive costs $129.
The drive connects to a Mac or PC using a rotating flip-out USB 2.0 connector, and draws power directly from the USB interface. The chassis measures 0.37 x 2.41 x 1.8 inches — inside is a one-inch Western Digital-made hard drive.
An activity light shows you when the drive is connected; the light flashes when data is being transferred. Western Digital also includes a rubberized sleeve to protect the drive when you’re transporting it.
System requirements call for Mac OS 9.2.2 or Mac OS X v10.1.5 or later, and an available USB port.
