SanDisk Cruzer Micro

SanDisk today ramped up the capacity of one of its smallest drives, the Cruzer Micro, to 8GB. The update doubles the capacity while still allowing space for the thumb slider that tucks away the USB port without the need for a cap. The extra storage is worth roughly 2,000 songs or five hours of typical home video camera footage, SanDisk says. Windows users also receive U3 support that turns the Micro into a portable program launcher, with full bundled copies of SanDisk's CruzerSync backup tool, a password manager, and Skype already preloaded.

For storage, the new Cruzer works with any Mac or Windows PC and should be available in all of SanDisk's markets by mid-September at a price of $130. Existing models will stay in the lineup and range from a basic 512MB drive for $15 to the 4GB edition priced at $70.
