News: USB-C Duplicator Shows USB-C Product Trending Up

In a recent news press release from Nexcopy Inc., it appears USB Type C is trending up for consumer demand.

Via the EIN News Wire Service, Nexcopy announced a twenty target USB-C Duplicator.  Some of the information posted in the release talks about the upward trend manufacturers are seeing with USB type C product.  In addition, the production of a mass aggregator, or duplicator, is another indication users are data loading, in bulk, to USB-C product.

“Apple computers and Iot, or Internet Of Things, are driving the force behind the increased demand for USB-C flash drive consumption.  Although the internet is great for many data sharing applications, there is still a great need for data dissemination off line.  USB is still the definitive choice among users to share data via flash memory,” states Greg Morris, President of Nexcopy.

Morris continues, “We see the demand of USB-C duplication to only rise in the coming years.  In technology, smaller is always better, and as devices get slimmer in size the USB type A socket will eventually phase out and USB type C taking over.  The transition is slow, but it is inevitable; and with that said, we are ready – today.”

The USB-C duplicator has a list price of $1,299 from what we understand and available now through a list of on-line retails like Amazon and NewEgg.  The product is also available through a worldwide network of authorized resellers.
