Kingston shrinks 64GB into a pocket-sized USB flash drive for PC and Android devices

Kingston introduced a flash memory USB dongle that combines the flexibility of both USB and microUSB ports with storage options of up to 64GB in a small form-factor. The DataTraveler microDuo flash drive can be used on any PC or Android USB On-The-Go compatible device, which means smartphones and tablets as well. 


The dongle seems like a good choice for easy transfer of larger files between mobile devices, or having an additional amount of "cold storage" around. Unfortunately, USB 3.0 isn't supported, so if you want to copy 4K videos left and right, you better arm yourself with plenty of patience.


Kingston hasn't announced the prices for the different variants, but the product should be up for sale soon. The DT microDUO will be available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB varieties. It has been tested with a large list of devices that includes flagships by HTC, Samsung, and Sony.
