Kingston Releases New High-speed USB OTG Flash Drive and MicroSDHC/SDXC Card
If your Android device’s onboard storage isn’t enough or you’re looking to swap the SD card for one that’s faster and of higher capacity, Kingston may just have something for you.
First up is the new DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 flash drive, which expands the storage of your device by up to 64GB. It has a USB–3.0-to-microUSB interface, making it perfect for transferring files between your smartphone or tablet and the PC. Of course, your device must support USB On-The-Go, and a list of compatible devices can be found here. The 16GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 has read and write speeds of 70MB/s and 10MB/s respectively, while the 32 and 64GB versions are pegged at 15MB/s for the write speed. The DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 comes with a 5-year warranty.
The other product is a Class 10 UHS-I 90R/45W microSDHC/SDXC card. With up to 90MB/s read and 45MB/s write speeds (if you’ve a UHS-I capable device; Class 10 performance if without), it’s designed for those who do a lot of continuous photo shooting/video recording or file transfers. Available in 16, 32, and 64GB capacities, the new cards are also backed by a lifetime warranty.
Pricing for both products will be available at a later date.
