Super Talent Technology Corp., one of the leading suppliers of advanced memory products, this week announced what it claims to be the world’s tiniest USB flash drive that can store 8GB of data. A good news for consumers is that the tiny drive of record capacity is hardly expensive.

The new tiny 8GB USB flash drives belong to Super Talent Pico family of products that includes three different types of enclosures: water-resistant Pico-A with a swivel lid (38.7mm x 12.4mm x 3.9mm), retractable Pico-B (31.8mm x 18.8mm x 4.4mm) and miniature rugged water-resistant Pico-C (C: 31.3mm x 12.4mm x 3.4mm). All the drives are available in capacities of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. Pico Series USB drives feature up to 30 MB/s (200X) transfer speeds.

The tiniest 8GB drive on earth, according to Super Talent, is Pico-C, which weighs just 4.7 grams and can be held on a tip of a finger or kept inside a small wallet compartment for coins.

The tiny drive that features capacity of two DVDs is something that can catch attention of technology enthusiasts, but market prospects of the device may not be exceptionally good from the start. Customers seeking for miniature devices may not be interested in 8GB capacities, whereas those, who demand to carry a lot of data with them may get USB flash drives that can keep 16GB or 32GB of information.

Super Talent Pico-C 8GB USB 2.0 flash drive costs about $37 in online stores in the U.S.
