M-Systems Flash Disk Pioneers Ltd. (NASDAQ: FLSH), a leader in flash disk data storage products for the embedded systems, Internet appliances and telecom/networking markets, today announced its DiskOnKey personal storage device is now available with increased storage capacities of 16 and 32MB. DiskOnKey connects to a computer’s universal serial bus (USB) port and implements M-Systems’ flash data storage technology in a compact, self-contained and reliable device. It is ideal for companies looking to outfit their employees with additional storage solutions or for individuals requiring a cost-effective solution to transfer data.
“We have worked aggressively to develop and enhance our flash-based storage solution for the consumer user,” said Dan Harkabi, vice president of M-Systems. “We understand that a portable device should do more than hold data and are working on developing additional features and applications to meet the needs of our customers. The fact that we are continuously striving for technological excellence enables us to remain at the forefront of the market.”
DiskOnKey is a lightweight device smaller than the size of a typical pen that can be used as an alternative to bulky storage devices and floppy disks for reliable and personal read/write data. Its unique design and ease of use enables any user, from the student to the business person, to transfer data between their computers at home or work, in their pocket or briefcase. DiskOnKey does not require drivers with the latest operating systems and is operating-system-independent allowing users with both a Mac and Windows machine to easily transfer data between the two systems.
The dimensions of DiskOnKey are 82mmx15mmx23mm. Manufacturers suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the 8, 16 and 32MB DiskOnKey are $49.99, $69.99 and $99.99 respectively. Prices at these levels make the DiskOnKey the most affordable driverless portable storage solution on the market.
