12/08/2006 03:01:00 PM Eastern

Dallas — Edge Tech introduced its first U3-enabled USB flash drive this week, alongside a drive with biometric recognition software.

The DiskGO drives will include several software programs, including the Thunderbird e-mail application, Pass2Go security software, ACDSee image editor, PowerBackup from Cyberlink and ZinioReader.

They will be available in capacities from 512MB to 2GB with pricing between $29.95 and $59.95.

U3 is a flash-drive operating system developed by SanDisk and msystems to enable USB drives to run or download software applications directly from the drive, without leaving trace files on a host PC.

For the security conscious, Edge Tech began shipping its DiskGo biometric flash drive this month. It features a fingerprint scanner, password storage and 192-bit TES encryption to keep saved data secure. It will be available in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB capacities for a suggested $69.95, $99.95 and $149, respectively.
