New USB Flash Drive/Reader Offers Expansion Possibilities for Mobile Users Everywhere

Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the DataTraveler Micro Reader, an all-in-one USB Flash drive and reader that can store, transfer and read content on mobile memory cards.

“As mobile phones perform more sophisticated functions, carving a greater place in the lives of mobile consumers, Kingston is developing faster speed/larger capacity cards and versatile USB/card/device readers to help users get the most out of their devices,” said Jean Wong, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. “We believe the DT Micro Reader will be well received by the mobile community as a smart single-solution to navigate the plethora of devices and card formats on the market today.”

The DataTraveler Micro Reader is enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost™, and features onboard Flash memory up to 4GB(1) and an expansion slot to read microSD, microSDHC, or Memory Stick Micro™ (M2) cards. It is the perfect device for users who want to minimize the number of devices they carry and still have a USB drive handy for storage and a reliable method to transfer songs, videos, photos, and more between a mobile phone and computer.

Mobile phones that utilize microSD, microSDHC or Memory Stick Micro™ (M2) memory cards can take advantage of the DT Micro Reader’s simple drag and drop action that easily transfers files between one’s PC or Mac and mobile phone. Digital content can now be enjoyed on the phone without the need for cables.

The DataTraveler Micro Reader is backed by a five-year warranty and legendary Kingston service and support. The 1GB version will ship this month, followed by the 2- and 4GB capacities.
