HP launches new flash drives

Hewlett-Packard has launched new company branded USB flash drives.

The unusual part is that the drives are manufactured by PNY Technologies, a US company, with which HP signed a partnership agreement in 2008.

The newly launched models – HP v240b and HP v240g – are very small with dimensions of 7 x 16 x 31 mm and weight of just 4.2 grams. Their tiny size makes them very easy to lose and this is why HP has provided them with a brightly colored chassis that has been made sturdier and now features protection from dust, dirt and water. Users can also add key chains, mobile devices etc. to the flash drives via a small hole in the drive chassis.

The new HP flash drives support USB 2.0 and come with 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB capacities. The 2/4/8 GB models can read with 14 MB/sec speed while the more spacious 16/32 GB models reach 18 MB/sec read speed. Write speed is 4 MB/sec in the 2/4/8 GB models, while as expected the 16/32 GB models feature 8 MB/sec write speed.

The flash drives come with a 2-year warranty.
