Sometimes carrying around your 500GB or 1TB external hard drive may not be the most convenient solution, especially if your 1TB external hard drive requires a power plug for it to work. Well the good news is that Sony has come up with a series of new USB flash drives that will have storage capacities of up to 64GB. Granted it is significantly less than an external hard drive, but in terms of portability and aesthetics, it looks like Sony might have hit the spot.
Coming in colors of either black or white, the Micro P Vault will be available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities. It also comes installed with File Rescue and x – Pict Story. For those not familiar with File Rescue and x – Pict Story, the former supposedly will allow users to retrieve accidentally deleted data by accident in a pinch, and the latter allowing automated photo presentation creation, using your photos stored in the Micro P Vault.
Other features of the drive include a 360-degree LED which will show whether data is being written, and a strap hole for attaching a key chain or mobile phone. Unfortunately, it looks like the device is set to be released only in Asia-Pacific markets, and pricing for the device has yet to be revealed.
