Sony's love affair with Her Majesty's Secret Service and its most famous spy shows no sign of ending. Having punted a Bond-branded briefcase, Vaio and Cyber-shot combo at the Americans, the Brits get... a 007-embossed MicroVault USB Flash disk. The USB connector's retractable, which should appeal to budding Qs, but alas there are no explosive darts or anti-gravity devices built in.

"Combining style and quality" - it says here - the 007 MicroVault offers a mere 1GB of storage - though the standard line-up goes up to 8GB - and ships with a 1080p HD trailer for Casino Royale for those of you who've not seen it on the web yet.

The spy-spec'd gadget is set to go on sale ahead of the movie's release on 19 November. ®
