Paraben's CSI stick: mobile phone snooping made easy

Manufacturer Paraben isn’t specifically marketing the CSI stick as a device for snooping on your dearly beloved, but the firm does claim its gadget opens the world of digital forensics to anyone that needs to “gather forensic-grade data” from a mobile phone.

Various adaptors are supplied with the stick to ensure it’ll fit a range of mobile phones, although so far the CSI stick only works with Samsung and Motorola handsets.

Once you’ve copied the 'incriminating' evidence, you’ll be able to search through the various forms of data using PC-based forensic analysis software, also from Paraben.

The CSI stick is available now online, with prices ranging between $200 (£100/€130) for the basic CSI stick package and $1800 (£900/€1150) for a kit containing the stick and forensic software.
