8/29/2007 09:36:00 AM Eastern

Miliptias, Calif. — SanDisk announced an 8GB model of its Cruzer Micro USB flash drive yesterday, which is double the largest capacity previously available in that line.

The flash drive measures 2 inches long, half an inch thick and weighs less than half an ounce, said SanDisk. A sliding USB connector is designed to prevent cap loss as well as protect the connector when the drive is not in use. It also offers a slider switch illuminated by an amber LED light when the drive is active.

Included with the drive is the U3 Smart Technology for running applications directly from the drive, without those applications having to be installed on the computer. U3-compatible software is provided free with Cruzer Micro and includes the PC phone service Skype, SanDisk’s CruzerSync for synchronizing files between a PC and the drive, the password manager program SignupShield Passwords from Protecteer and a trial version of McAfee anti-virus software.

The drive is expected to be available in mid-September with a suggested retail of $129.
