Sony reveals gold-trimmed Pocket Bit Mini

updated 04:50 pm EDT, Wed August 1, 2007

Sony Pocket Bit Mini

Sony today unveiled a new update to its Pocket Bit Mini line, also known as the Micro Vault Tiny in North America. The new upscale version, known as the USM-HX, comes in black or white with a gold color trim and also ships with a unique two-way case which lets the card's USB port either face outwards to connect to a PC or inwards to guard it during travel, with a swiveling cover providing an extra layer of security. Sony also serves its pro audience by bundling the new Pocket Bit with encryption software and a virtual expander tool that maximizes the drive's usable space.

While the software utilities are Windows only and support Vista's ReadyBoost automatic caching feature, the basic drives work with Macs and any USB-equipped computer and should be available in Japan as of September in 1GB ($34) and 2GB ($52) capacities. US versions are probable but unconfirmed.
