USB 3.0 is the next generation USB connectivity option for computer users that offers much faster connection speeds than what we get out of today's fastest USB 2.0 ports. At CES 2009, a company called Symwave will debut what it claims to be the world's first USB 3.0 storage solution.

This seems like a bit of the old chicken or egg dilemma to me. There are no computers supporting USB 3.0 at this time, but before OEMs and computer makers add USB 3.0 to computers, there need to be some devices on the market that use the interface.

Symwave will be offering demos of USB 3.0 external storage solutions at their CEs 2009 booth. The big improvement for consumers with USB 3.0 is that data throughput is about ten times faster than USB 2.0. We can all agree that faster backups and transfer of large files is a great thing.
