Sony releases higher capacity Micro Vault flash drives

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Sony has announced newer and higher capacity versions of their famous Micro Vault line of flash drives. The new drives come in 256 MB to 4 GB capacities and are "Byte-sized" according to Sony. The Micro Vaults measure 1/2" wide and 1" long while being about the thickness of a quarter.

The drives come preloaded with Virtual Expander, an application which dynamically compresses and expands files for an up to three times increase in capacity. The 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB and 2 GB models are currently available, while the 4 GB version will be available later this year. Prices range from $29.99 to $199.99.
