Dallas, TX - December 13, 2005 -
EDGE Tech Corp,
a leading supplier of DRAM and flash memory upgrades, portable
computing products, storage devices, and other personal technology
solutions is pleased to announce the latest USB flash drive addition to
the company's DiskGO! line - the new 8GB DiskGO! USB 2.0 Flash Drive.
With a sleek silver design, the eight-gigabyte unit is approximately
the size of a thumb and can hold thousands of pictures, music files,
data files, or documents from a user's computer -- all with one
"plug-and-go" step. The unit is priced at $599 and will be sold to the
channel and from the company's Web site.
Using the included SecureGuard software, the 8GB
DiskGO! is password protected and is only 3.37" (L) x 1.05" (W) x .59"
(H) in size and weighs in at half an ounce, making this USB Flash drive
the perfect solution for accessing information anywhere. Other features
on this device include a "plug-'n-play" feature for easy installation
and removal, "hot-swappable," a function which allows easy transfer of
information from one computer to the next without restarting, fast USB
2.0 high transfer-speeds, and both PC and Mac compatibility. A keychain
grommet, EasyBoot software, built-in clip, three foot extension cable,
lanyard and removable cap make this a robust unit. "Just a few years ago, portable flash drives were aimed
only at the mobile workforce," said EDGE Tech Corp CEO Jeff Thompson.
"Now with the popularity of digital music, digital photos, and the vast
amount of data held on personal and work computers, drives like EDGE
Tech's 8GB DiskGO! USB 2.0 Flash Drive are in high demand."
The DiskGO! Product line comes with a lifetime warranty and toll-free technical support.
