Kingston announces a USB 3.0/USB-C dual Flash Drive at Computex

DTDUO3C
Memory maker Kingston has unveiled a new USB flash drive at Computex, tieing in with the latest USB tech update: USB-C. The new flash drive, called the DataTraveler microDuo 3C USB Flash drive, is similar to the current Duo type drives, though instead of microUSB and USB, it connects to the newer USB-C ports.

USB-C is the new type of connector that is featured on the new Chromebook Pixel 2, and which Google announced at Google I/O would be appearing on new generation Android phones, most likely including any new upcoming Nexus phones, in the next year.

The DataTraveler microDuo 3C USB Flash drive works with both standard USB Type-A (3.1, 3.0, 2.0) and USB Type-C ports, offering 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of storage. The drives can transfer data quickly with read speeds at up to 100Mb/s, while writing can get to 15MB/s on USB 3.0 ports. The DataTraveler microDuo 3C USB Flash drive will begin shipping globally later this month.

Pricing and availability haven’t been announced for Australia as yet, but we’re following up to find out particulars.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
