At CES 2012, Victorinox showcased its SSD and Slim 3.0 USB drives with storage capacities between 64GB and 1TB. The company claims their thumb drivesized SSD is the smallest high-storage SSD around and the first to include a connector for both USB and ESATA. Last year, Transcend touted a similar sized USB 3.0 flash drive with 2 TB storage.
While the storage capacities of the USB drives keep increasing, the push for the smallest size seems to have hit a dead end since Dutch manufacturer Deonet came out with the “smallest Usb-stick in the world”. Based on revolutionary Micro Udp-chip memory, it is half the size of a classic Usb-memory chip: 19.5 x 14.5 mm with a 2.9-mm thickness. Despite its size, it can store between 4 and 16 GB of data. No wonder, no one has made a USB drive smaller than this.
