CeBIT is off and running with fascinating and scintillating new product announcements, and Pretec is no exception. The makers of i-Disk Tiny and i-Disk Diamond are taking the wraps off two exciting flash drives, one with a mobile phone bridge and the other with an expanded connectivity functionality.
The i-Disk Mobile is, of course, a USB 2.0 flash drive. It can also act as a mobile phone charger and, more importantly, a data transfer device, for uploads and downloads between a mobile phone and a PC. In addition, the mobile phone bridge has no switches or buttons; rather, you use the mobile phone keys to transfer data. The i-Disk Mobile now supports Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones; support for phones made by other manufacturers will be available very soon.
The i-Disk Connect is also a USB 2.0 flash drive. It has a built-in USB hub and a female USB socket that allows you to connect Wireless LAN, GPRS, GPS, Bluetooth, and other devices (including digital cameras). And, the i-Disk Connect is itself expandable, allowing connection of another USB storage device.
Both products are highlights of an entire suite of new products that Pretec is introducing at CeBIT. The majority of these products will be available beginning in April.
