Freecom's USBCard PRO
The USBCard PRO, which fits snugly into the credit card compartment of any wallet, stands above the crowded USB drive marketplace with its timeless and particularly robust design. Waterproof down to 20 meters, and featuring completely scratch-proof magnesium housing - integrating a clever mobile "click"-fitting USB connection - is an essential addition to anyones digital arsenal.

The small card is shipping now and offers a host of internal features such as a variety of memory capacities of 256 MB, 512 MB und 1 GB. It also arrives with a comprehensive, pre-installed software package to meet even the toughest data storage demands including: password protection, which makes the data inaccessible if the card is lost, convenient, worldwide e-mail access (via Outlook Pop3) on any computer with a USB interface, and Auto Run for Windows are just some of the features provided. With an average data transfer rate of 15 MB/s (reading) and 11 MB/s (writing), the USB card is also a tough competitor when it comes to speed.
The USBCard PRO operates with MS Windows, Mac OS 9.1/10.x and Linux 2.4. platforms. Popular pricing for the USBCard is $149.99 (recommended retail price for the 256 MB-version).
