Maxell has announced that they will be offering a full line of flash-based storage products with USB connectivity. The line will include a number of flash drives with five different available styles. Among the new drives will be a basic USB drive in blue or silver colors.
Maxell will offer a sliding USB drive with a side push design for the retractable USB port. A drive with a rotating 360-degree cover will be available that offers password protection. The USB Style drive has encryption technology and ships with software to allow backup of files automatically to the flash drive.
The final drive is the USB+ drive that incorporates a microSD card reader so users can get photos from their mobile phones to the computer without needing a card reader. All the drives will have a 1-year warranty and prices are unavailable at this time.
