You may have come across a zillion thumb drive designs by now. But design isn’t everything and unfortunately without a unique design, it is very hard for a thumb drive to stand out of the crowd and compete. But there are exceptions.
Take a look at the PhotoFast JBOD thumb drive, which is a flash drive with conventional looks but with a unique functionality. “The CR-5500 is not your average microSD card reader hidden in USB thumbkey, but it is in fact a 4 slot microSDHD card reader that will turn all your cards into a single USB Drive using JBOD (Just A Bunch Of Disks) setting and let you build your very one 64GB (Max) USB thumbkey.”
Unfortunately the device is only available as a pre-order. Shipment starts in January next year.
Price? $64 (approx.)
I've always wanted to be able to add more memory to a USB key without loosing the storage I had already, and I've just learned the term for it... JBOD.
