SanDisk Corporation today introduced its Cruzer Mini, an embedded USB 2.0 hi-speed “key chain” flash drive about the size of a lipstick case. Cruzer Mini is one of the world’s smallest flash memory drives and uses the latest USB interface technology to achieve the maximum data transfer rates possible today, according to the press release. The portable storage devices initially are being sold in 128MB and 256MB capacities, with suggested retail pricing of US$49.99 and $79.99, respectively. The company plans to introduce higher capacity Cruzer Minis later this year. System requirements for the Mac are Mac OS 9.2.1 or later or Mac OS 10.1.2 or later.
