"This little device has more than 16 times the storage capacity of a standard 128MB(a) memory card," said Tony Andrews, Vice President of Engineering and Product Development for I/OMagic Corporation. "It can be used for storing important files, backing up your computer, storing and transporting digital photos and MP3s or transferring files from one computer to another."
The I/OMagic GigaBank(TM) 2.2 Portable Storage Device is powered through the use of a built-in USB 2.0 connector, which can be stored in the drive enclosure when it is not in use. The GigaBank(TM) 2.2 currently supports a number of different operating systems, including Windows XP/2000/ME/98SE.
I/OMagic anticipates shipping its new GigaBank(TM) 2.2 Portable Storage Device in September 2004 at an introductory suggested retail price of $189.99.
