We’re now storing more data than ever these days, and carrying it around from device to device is now even easier, with USB devices storing even more.
This year, USB devices are increasing in size, much like how we’re seeing bigger memory cards in smaller physical sizes, and SanDisk has announced it will have a couple of newbies on store shelves of sorts shortly.
Both newbies are minor updates of sorts, taking existing ranges and applying size increases, because we all need more storage these days.
The first of these is an update to the existing Ultra Dual USB drive, one of SanDisk’s tiny thumb drives with both a standard USB 3.0 connector and a microUSB connector built inside, allowing you to go between phone, tablet, and computer without even thinking.
Technically called an “on-the-go” or “OTG” device, it’s one of the physically smallest USB drives you’ll come across, but offers fairly speedy USB 3.0 transfer rates and now as much as 128GB storage, up from a solid 64GB maximum.
SanDisk’s other change is to its wireless drives, with its Connect Wireless USB stick increasing from a maximum of 128GB up to 200GB.
