Kingston has unveiled a humongous 256GB pendrive in India, the DataTraveler 310 USB Flash Drive.
It was only a matter of 5 years ago that 256MB pendrives were accessible only to those who were willing to shell out thousands for their data transport needs. Slow USB 1.0 devices with poor storage capacities, but after the slow Floppies, and the WORM CD and DVD, even a 128MB pendrive seemed like a step up. The Kingston DataTraveler 310 boasts of a 25MB/s read speed and 12 MB/s.
Now we have a 256GB pendrive available, and while the price may scare you, it is only sure to decrease. For now this monstrosity is priced at an a shocking Rs. 48,000 enough to buy you a laptop or netbook with as much storage capacity.
