drive maker, Transcend, has released a a brand-new ultra-tiny USB flash drive that only weighs two grams. The JetFlash T3 is designed to be extra-rugged and solve the problem of minidrives that break down.
It uses a Chip On Board manufacturing technique that molds the memory chip and circuit board into the drive’s unbreakable Polycarbonate casing. According to a company press release this makes the T3 more solid and robust than even full-sized flash drives.
It comes in 1GB and 2GB versions, and is made with brand-name NAND Flash chips. It does not need an adapter to connect to your computer and slides into a normal USB slot. The JetFlash T3 uses Transcend’s own JetFlash elite data management tools that run directly from the T3 without having to install any software on your PC.
