WD unveils Pocket Drive

Western Digital today introduced the WD Passport Pocket Drive, a miniature digital storage device boasting a capacity of 6GB. The device is roughly the size of a matchbox, and weighs 1.6 ounces. Measuring 0.37 x 2.41 x 1.80-inches and housing a one-inch WD hard drive, the WD Passport Pocket Drive features a unique flip-out, rotating USB 2.0 connector that allows usage in tight spaces. The USB connector is designed to be thin enough that two drives can be used at the same time in the tightly spaced USB ports found on notebook computers, and the drive itself is powered by the computer, negating the need for a separate power supply. An activity light on the drive glows when it is connected and flashes when the device is storing data. Western Digital's WD Passport Pocket Drive is available for $130.
