SanDisk launches Cruzer Blade USB thumblet drive

Fits in a thimble

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

SanDisk has launched what it calls a paperclip-size USB thumb drive, designed to fit on a key ring and store from 2GB to 16GB of data.

SanDisk Cruzer Blade

The Cruzer Blade is not the smallest-ever thumblet drive but is about half the size of an ordinary USB thumb drive.

Traxdata claims to have the world's smallest thumb drive, the MICRO USB. The Pico USB flash drive is the size of a finger nail, fits in a thimble and has a ring for keyring attachment.

With these thumblet drives the USB plug is bigger than the actual flash chip and mount. Really, the damn things can't go any smaller - you have to be able to hold one whilst sticking it into a USB slot.

The Cruzer Blade is available now in the United States and Canada at sandisk.com, with prices ranging from $14.99 to $77.99. ®
