Verbatim’s 2010 line-up packs mega storage capacity into aesthetically-pleasing, feature-rich devices that range from the diminutive to the downright tiny. The company’s latest portable hard drives include:
Titan XS™ – A USB interface that, at just 2.5”, is the smallest portable hard drive in the world! With durable and sporty styling, the uniquely-designed unit is outfitted with a rubber enclosure to protect it from rough handling, making the drive ideal for mobile computing. The Titan XS is the perfect on-the-go device with an internal anti-shock mechanism that insulates it from bangs and falls. The new Titan XS is powered through a USB cable and will be available in three storage capacities 320, 500 and 640 GB, beginning early February 2010.
CLŌN™ – Weighing in at only 4.87 oz. and measuring a compact 4.54” x 2.99” x 0.59”, Verbatim’s CLŌN USB HD drive is an easy-to-use solution for consumers’ portable hard drive needs. Pocket sized for extra portability, the CLŌN features a scuff- and fingerprint- resistant casing with shock-resistant technology to protect valuable data.

With USB support, the drives can be easily moved from computer to computer without having to shut down or reboot the system. Currently available in 250, 320, 500, and 640 GB models.
