2Gb SanDisk Cruzer Titanium portable flash drive introduced - SANDISK double the capacity and strengthen their Cruzer Titanium line
Cruzer Titanium will be manufactured using an advanced Titanium alloy from Liquidmetal Technologies, commonly used for aerospace, medical devices, sporting goods and other applications that require lightweight strength and the ability to withstand extremes of temperature. This unique alloy is approximately 2.5 times the strength of titanium.** . Its superior strength, hardness, high corrosion and wear resistance make it ideal for the Cruzer Titanium.
Cruzer Titanium is preloaded with the full versions of value-added portable software programs. These include CruzerLock™ 2, a data file encryption program; CruzerSync™, which synchronizes with Outlook data; and Cruzer PocketCache™, which allows for file backups with minimal memory consumption.
“Consumers are demanding higher capacities to store a diverse range of files and materials including high-resolution digital photos, digital music, video clips, presentations and other data that require large capacities,” said Mike Morganstern, Cruzer product marketing manager at SanDisk. “The 2GB Cruzer Titanium meets these capacity requirements and combines the highest levels of data protection with an award-winning industrial design.”
The 2GB Cruzer Titanium is expected to ship in April with a suggested retail price of $249.99. The 512MB* and 1GB versions are currently available with suggested prices of $84.99 and $169.99.
Cruzer Titanium is “plug and play” with PCs and the Macintosh due to USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) compliance when used with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Mac OS 10.1.2+ and Mac OS 9.2.1+. A driver can be downloaded for Windows 98SE support.
