Iomega announced the new Iomega Micro Mini Hard Drive in 4GB and 8GB capacities. Designed with drop shock technology to handle the bumps and dings of portable use, the novelties are offered as an alternative to Flash-based drives.
The Iomega Micro Mini Hard Drive is a Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) 4200rpm hard drive that weighs less than 50 grams (1.75 ounces) and has a smaller footprint than a credit card.
The Micro Mini Hard Drive ships with an Iomega Solution CD that currently includes Iomega Automatic Backup (Mac) software, Iomega Automatic Backup Pro (PC) software for backup and disaster recovery, MUSICMATCH Jukebox music management software (PC and Mac), and Adobe Photoshop Album SE (PC) software for digital photos.
The new drives are compatible with Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows ME; with Mac OS 10.1 and above; and with Linux 2.6.7 and above.
The Iomega Micro Mini Hard Drive is available now for $129.95 (4GB model) and $169.95 (8GB model) at www.iomega.com, select online and web retailers. (All prices are U.S. suggested retail.)
