SanDisk has announced a new USB flash drive this morning. This one is called the SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive and offers up to 64GB of storage along with a full-sized and micro-sized USB connection. This drive is intended for Android users, and works with both Mac and Windows on the desktop side.
The storage options include 16GB, 32GB, and the previously mentioned 64GB. The USB connection is 2.0, and SanDisk is touting goodies such as how the drive will be able to “provide an easy, instant, and hassle-free way” to move files from a smartphone or tablet to a regular computer. Naturally, the microUSB connection will be for your mobile device, and the regular-sized USB connection will be for your computer.
On the mobile side, users will need to install the SanDisk Memory Zone app. Once that has been taken care of though, the app will launch automatically when the drive is connected. With the app, users will be able to move files individually, or in bulk. Another perk for this setup includes not having any small cover to worry about losing. SanDisk has the drive setup with a translucent sliding cover.
Otherwise, the Ultra Dual USB Drive has the option for password protection (on the Android devices), and combines the local storage, any memory card storage and Ultra Dual USB Drive storage which should make it all a bit easier to access and/or manage. That being said, these drives are available for purchase beginning today. They are priced from $19.99 for the 16GB model, and increase to $49.99 for the 64GB model.
We also encourage you to visit our friends at Android Community who have spent some time with the SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive pre-launch, and as such, have a review posted.
