[CES 2018] If you’d rather not carry around an external hard drive and want something small that can fit in your pocket or hang on a keychain, then you might be interested to learn that at CES 2018, SanDisk has announced a couple of new flash drives in the 1TB and 256GB variety, which they are claiming to be the world’s smallest.
Flash drives are already pretty tiny and portable, but we suppose if they could be shrunk down further, why not? Starting with the 1TB model, this is actually a USB-C flash drive, meaning that unless your computer has access to USB-C ports, its use could be somewhat limited, but it might be ideal for MacBook Pro users who don’t want to deal with dongles.
As for the 256GB flash drive, this is your typical USB flash drive, which according to SanDish will fit “approximately, 14,000 photos, 10 hours of full HD video and 16,000 songs, with 64GB still available for files.” Unfortunately SanDisk has not mentioned anything regarding pricing or availability just yet, but presumably the 1TB model probably won’t come cheap. As it stands SanDish is also offering a 128GB Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive with a pretty small footprint, just in case you can’t wait for either of these models to become available.
