PNY adds U3 Attaché drives as U3 gains music support

PNY U3-based Attaché Drive

At the DigitalLife Expo in New York, peripheral maker PNY said it would be the latest company to produce flash drives with U3 support built-in. New versions of PNY's Attaché and Mini Attaché will rely on U3's smart drive technology, which can run web browsers and other programs directly from the drive on a Windows PC without having to install any files on a host computer. The drives will ship in 1GB (Mini Attaché) and 2GB (Attaché) capacities by early 2007 for an as-yet undetermined price.

When PNY's new storage ships, it should also take advantage of a collaboration between the online store eMusic with music software developer Inmatrix. U3 drive owners who buy the latter's Zoom Player Mobile can not only play most common music formats -- including protected Windows Media -- but also receive 50 free MP3 songs from eMusic's online store. The player itself is compact at 2MB and thus leaves even smaller drives free to both play and store a listener's music. The software is available for $36 and is also available as a trial version.
