TEAC Multifunction Drive

TEAC on Monday started shipping its Multifunction Portable Drive to the US. The drive merges a 40GB notebook-class hard drive with a multi-format card reader, allowing its owner to transfer photos or other files directly from CompactFlash, Memory Stick, and SD flash cards to a hard drive for temporary storage until returning to a Mac OS X or Windows PC to transfer information through USB 2. The reader can automatically copy files with a single button press, erase files from cards itself, and operate independently of any external power source courtesy of a lithium-ion battery, TEAC says. No price information has been given, but TEAC indicates that the drive will ship on December 1st. Larger-capacity 80GB and 120GB models have been announced for other regions and are anticipated for a later North American release.
