Imation 2-in-1 Micro USB Flash Drive Solves on Device Storage Limits


It is no secret that storage still drives our connected devices. Whether you have a device with no SD card support, store everything in the cloud but find yourself without network connection or if you are just looking for a quicker and more portable way to carry/transfer data. The use case scenarios are pretty endless with Imations new 2-in-1 Micro USB Flash Drive.

“The new Imation 2-in-1 Micro USB Flash Drive provides consumers with something extremely valuable: additional storage space, no batteries or internet required,” said Toshi Hokari, executive director, product management and marketing, Imation. “Whether it’s used to transfer photos or videos to a computer or another Android device, or to easily view content on the go, the 2-in-1 Micro USB Flash Drive solves a major headache mobile device users often experience—running out of storage space at critical times.”

The design and functionality of the 2-in-1 device are pretty remarkable. Give it a little pull to reveal the USB plug that is neatly tucked away inside. Plug it into your PC or Laptop and transfer whatever you want to it. Store it conveniently on your keychain for travel. Push the top down to access the Micro USB portion and connect it directly to your Android device and have instant access to your additional media content or files.

Being able to easily transfer files and media between two devices without a PC or waiting for the cloud is certainly another win for many of us. How many times have you been out with friends and wanted a movie they had on their phone, or maybe just a large ROM file? Plug in, copy it over and move on. Or maybe you have hit that dreaded “Storage full, move or delete files” message while you on a trip. Pop in the drive, copy them over and you are set.

This little guy already made itself useful to us while at CES. A company ran out of press kits but had them all on his laptop. I handed over the Imation Flash Drive and he copied them over and I was on my way. I plugged it into my Xperia Z later that night to read through the files and send them off to some of the team.

The 2-in-1 USB flash drive is scheduled for launch this quarter with some very reasonable price tags included. It will be available in three sizes: 16GB for a suggested MSRP of $29.99, 32GB for a suggested MSRP of $39.99 and 64GB for a suggested MSRP of $64.99. Of course it won’t be compatible with EVERY device on the market. Your Android device does need to support OTG (On-The-Go) connections. If you have no clue if your device will support it, then head over to Imation’s compatibility list and find out. If you are good-to-go, then hit the links to Amazon below to pick up the size you want at a slight discount. They are in order from 16Gb to 64GB

I am the proud father of three, 3, 9, and 12. I recently upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Sony Xperia Z. Having so many kids warranted a change of pace. Let me tell you, it is mind blowing. I love Android, I love tech and I love my family. Not in that order though. I work hard, play even harder and take care of all that are around me when I can.
