Itty-Bitty Computer Thing

Biz BriefsSony Electronics debuted its Micro Vault “Tiny” drive in Park Ridge last week, and now offers the public some of the smallest computer storage devices to ever hit the market. Sony maintains offices for marketing and some consumer products in Park Ridge.

The Tiny drives plug into a computer’s USB port and are about 1/2 inch wide and a hair over one inch long. That makes them smaller than other flash drives, the popular data-storage devices sometimes called keychain drives. The Tiny drive is the latest in Sony’s Micro vault line and ranges in storage capacity from 256MB, priced at $29.99, to 4GB priced at $199.99. Tiny drives are expected in stores later this year.
