Style, Form-factor and Storage Capacity Make for Ideal Drive

Fountain Valley CA, -- July 16, 2007 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the availability of the Kingston® DataTraveler® 100 (DT 100) USB Flash drive. With a capless design, the USB connector is safely housed inside the DataTraveler's casing. A new, "thumb-action" slide positioned on the side of the drive makes retracting and protracting the USB connector, a simple, single-hand operation.

Offering style, function and affordability, the new DataTraveler 100 simplifies the process of storing and transferring large files from one digital device to another without passwords or built-in software programs. Available in capacities up to 8GB, the new DT 100 is the ideal USB drive for users who need a convenient way to transport and share files anywhere in the world.

"The DataTraveler 100's new thumb-action, retractable design reduces the drive's overall size, which allows for easy and unobtrusive transport in a pocket or attached to a keychain," said Joe Teng, Flash product manager, Kingston. "With 1, 2, 4 and 8GB capacities available, the DT 100 is the perfect solution for storing image files and documents," Teng added.

The new Kingston DataTraveler 100 is fully compatible with Windows Vista, Windows XP (SP1 and above) and Windows 2000 (SP3 and above) as well as Mac OS (10.x and above) and Linux (2.4 and above). In addition, the USB drive is fully compliant with high-speed USB 2.0 specifications, which makes the transfer of files and documents fast and convenient.
