PQI U350 Flash Drive
PQI has released a new USB flash drive designed to eliminate the need for a separate cap that can be lost. Using a mechanism similar to ballpoint pens, the U350 has a tab that can be pulled outwards to retract the USB connector when not in use, and pushed out until the port locks into place. The aluminum design is both stylish and space-efficient, according to PQI. All U350 models with file management software to backup and synchronize regularly accessed information, and are compatible with both MacOS X and Windows. Capacities range from 256MB to 4GB on the now-shipping U350. No pricing is yet available.
