Flash Drive Holds 8GB Compressed Data

4GB Compact Flash card has debuted, but Kanguru is the first to
release a 4GB flash drive. The KanguruMicro 2.0 drive can even hold
8GB data, assuming 2:1 data compression.

At a cost of $1699.95, you can get one Apple PowerBook 12", six
Apple iPod Mini 4GB or nine 1GB Hi-Speed USB flash drives.
Comparatively, the iPod Mini 4GB uses Hitachi’s mechanical
miniature hard drive whereas the KanguruMicro 2.0 utilizes NAND
flash memory. A 4GB Compact Flash card by Lexar is also several
hundred dollars less expensive than the KanguruMicro 2.0.
