Imation Nano Flash Drives

Veteran storage manufacturers Imation today announced details of their new line of portable USB flash drives, the Nano Flashes. The drives are available in storage capacities of 1, 2, 4 and 8GB; the design is an evolution of previous USB drives offered by the company, but is only 1.7 inches long, 0.6 inches wide, and 0.4 inches deep. It also focuses on an integrated 360-degree swivel cap, which protects the connector when the drive is not in use, and allows for attachment to keychains, lanyards and even mobile phones.

The Nano is compatible on a basic level with Linux and Mac OS 9 or later, but full compatibility is reserved for Windows 98, 2000, XP and Vista, which support password protection and drive partitioning. Vista additionally supports ReadyBoost funcationality.

Nano Flashes are shipping immediately in the US, at prices ranging between $15 and $90. No information as to when or if the drives will be available worldwide has been released by Imation at the time of writing.
