For Immediate Release:
EDGE Memory Launches DiskGO!* USB Watch Flash Drive
Company Secures Exclusive Promotion of Innovative Product with PC Connection
Dallas, TX- May 30, 2003 – Peripheral Enhancements Corporation, a leading
manufacturer of computer memory upgrades and digital media products,
announced today that it has partnered with PC Connection, Inc. to launch
the new EDGE DiskGO!* USB Watch Flash Drive. This latest offering from
Peripheral’s DiskGO! line of USB products will be sold exclusively through
PC Connection over the next thirty days.
The DiskGO! Watch is available in 128mb and 256mb capacities and serves as
a fully functional watch with an integrated USB 1.1 Flash Drive. The
DiskGO! Watch plugs directly into virtually any computer’s USB port and is
plug-and-play compatible with all popular operating systems. The DiskGO!
Watch immediately appears as a hard drive on the user’s desktop, allowing
easy transfer and storage of pictures, MP3s, slide presentations,
spreadsheets and other data. The Watch’s USB 1.1 drive writes at 1mb per
second and reads at 4.2mb per second. Secure Password Protection software
is built-in for added security.
“Gone are the days of users carrying a heavy laptop, low-capacity floppy
disks or other cumbersome media from the office to home, or from the office
across the country simply to transport important files. The DiskGO! Watch
provides the ability to take a PowerPoint file, for instance, to a meeting
across the country, while serving as an attractive wristwatch,” said Brian
Sartorius, Vice President of Operations for Peripheral Enhancements.
Kandi Stinson, VP Sales for the company, commented “We’re excited to be the
first in the U.S. to offer this unique product to the market and are
pleased that PC Connection has partnered with us for the launch. Our
success with our existing DiskGO! USB Flash drives prompted us to explore
other form factor options and a wristwatch was a unique and natural choice.”
EDGE Memory DiskGO! USB Watch Flash Drives are exclusively available for
purchase at pcconnection.com and will be broadly released to other
Peripheral partners in early July. For more information on Peripheral
