Kingston Road Map for USB 3.0

Kingston LogoThe Intel based standard for USB 3.0 was announced nearly 2 years ago and since then, products have slowly trickled in to the market place. Of course there is a cycle to progress…you can’t get peripherals until you have controllers [main stream now] and once you get controllers you expand out to peripherals. That being said, Kingston, one of the largest memory manufacturers on earth, has launched a fairly detailed road map for USB 3.0 products. Kingston was amongst the first to announce USB 3.0 flash drives into retail under the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 drive and HyperX MAX 3.0 external USB hard drive – both launched earlier in 2010. And now, as the first product on their roadmap for the year, have introduced the DataTraveler HyperX 3.0, which will serve as their flagship model and be part of the HyperXperience product line, a family of high-performance Kingston Flash products that will include SSDs, USBs and flash memory cards. Kingston made the announcement at CES but doesn’t expect to release the less expesnive USB 3.0 flash drives until Q2, 2011 under the DataTraveller DTU30 brand and will include capacities ranging from 16GB to 64GB.

Toshiba Intro’s Android Netbook

Toshiba announces a slick new Netbook running Android OS and NVIDIA processor.  It boots in about 1 second, yes, that’s right, 1 second…and is it just me, or does that case look like leather? The AC100 has a full sized keyboard, 10.1 LED backlite screen and 512RAM [upgradeable to 1GB] with 8GB of storage.  With the USB port and mini USB port storage should not be a problem as it’s virtually unlimited with USB hard drives and USB flash drives.

Lavish Gresso USB Drive

MSN did a fun article on 8 lavish gadgets for the holidays, and of course, a USB flash drive made the list.

Gresso introduced a 64GB USB flash drive which is F1 racing inspired with sleek design, look and material.  Gresso used the base material to be carbon fiber [the black] and titanium alloy as the accents [silver] then glazed the entire device with a special ceramic coating.

The Gresso branded USB stick will set you back 6,448 Peso’s or about $500 USDs.  Still small enough to be lost in any coat pocket, but a perfect stocking stuffer for the well-to-do.

So the question becomes:  would your friends be more impressed with the Gresso flash drive or a $500 bill?

500 bill

I’d pick the cash.
