Super Talent has introduced six new Pico drives with a capacity of 32GB. These models feature read speeds of up to 30MB/s and are water resistant. These new Pico USB drives start at $85 and if you need to have hardware encryption it will be around $99.
Just 15 months after launching the 8GB Pico drive, then hailed as the world's smallest 8GB USB drive, Super Talent is now able to pack an astounding 32GB of NAND flash into the same small dimensions. "Our customers have an insatiable need for higher capacity flash drives, but they don't want a big and bulky drive", Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James said in a statement. The Pico C drive measures only 31 x 12 x 3 mm and weighs less than an American nickel (~5g). Super Talent uses a COB manufacturing process for its Pico series to achieve the smallest possible size.
Pico drives are water resistant. These drives also support blazing fast read speeds up to 200X (30MB/sec). The 32GB Pico C is offered in either a nickel plated or 24K gold plated steel casing, while the 32GB Pico E, with a patent-pending sliding lid, is available with 24K gold plating. "Pico drives are feature rich and have an unmistakable aura of quality", Mr. James added. For the first time ever in the Pico series, Super Talent now offers three new models that include AES-256 hardware encryption for the highest level of data security. 32GB Pico drives will begin shipping this week to online retailers worldwide.
