Kingston has upped the ante in the flash memory stakes, with the addition of a 64GB USB thumb drive. Part of the Data Traveler 150 range, the 64GB flash drive has an RRP of £99 ex VAT. It is onsale from today.

"The new 64GB DataTraveler 150 takes transportable storage to the next level with big capacity in a small package," said, Kirsty Miller, Kingston Technology's European flash product marketing manager.

"As file sizes increase with digital media content such as music and photos, the need for USB flash drives with high capacities will continue to rise."

The Data Traveler 150 range works with Windows XP, Vista and Mac OS X, but the ReadyBoost feature in Windows Vista is not supported.

A 32GB version of the drive has also gone onsale with a recommended retail price of £55 ex VAT.
