Sony introduces new USB flash drives that support Type-A and Type-C ports
Sony has introduced a new line of USB flash drives that are notable because they work with both old school Type-A ports and new school Type-C ports. The drives will be available with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of storage. Sony plans on offering them starting next month (which begins tomorrow), and information like pricing and availability has not yet been released.

According to Sony, the drives support the USB 3.1 Generation 1 standard, which means that they have theoretical read speeds of 130MB per second. The flash drives will store content like music, video and photos, and will also help transfer content and media from a Mac or Windows desktop to an Android smartphone or tablet and vice versa.

The platforms that Sony's USB CA1-series support include Android, Windows, Mac and Chromebooks. As soon as Sony releases a launch schedule and some pricing information, we will pass it along to you. That could happen next month at MWC, which begins on February 22nd. In fact, that is the date of Sony's MWC media event for which invitations have already been sent out.

The Sony USB CA-1 flash drive can store as much as 64GB of content

That will be great once USB C gets more traction in the market. I know that companies like Meenova, who produced microUSB microSD card readers were planning to make a similar product for USB C, but this has integrated storage instead of just being a card reader.

This will be awesome once all laptops and computers support type-c. There will be no need for adapters.
