Flashdisc - The new floppy?
M-systems seems to be on the same line of judgement by announcing it’s product. Since Microsoft is trying to find a market for a gadget too big to be called a PDA and slightly smaller than a PC. M-Systems probably thought “Hey, we should also try to find some room in the market between a floppy and a flash drive.”
So what is flashdisc? Basically it’s a cheap, low capacity, flash drive for customers that need something with a bit more memory than a floppy, but not as expensive as a flash disk (Does anyone find flash disks expensive by the way? I don’t…).
These will come in two sizes: 16mb and 32mb. The price however is still TBA, but unless they sell them really cheap I don’t see how these can actually find room in the market. And even so, I still have my doubts due to it’s exaggerated size.
