SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) today introduced Cruzer® Contour™, a USB flash drive with the elegant look and feel of a fine fountain pen or wristwatch. The elegance extends inside Cruzer Contour, with state-of-the-art engineering, support for Windows® ReadyBoost™, and, a generous gallery of pre-installed U3™ software applications. Cruzer Contour was unveiled during a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show, in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
What especially sets apart Cruzer Contour, with its glossy black top and silver metallic body, is the drive’s unique sliding USB connector. Using your thumb to slide the top of Cruzer Contour back and forth brings out or hides the connector – there’s no visible switch, and no cap to lose.
“This is a USB flash drive you’ll want to take out of your pocket and show off to your friends,‘’ said Mike Morganstern, product marketing manager for Cruzer Contour. "SanDisk, the market leader in flash memory, is once again demonstrating that innovative technology doesn’t have to come in a boring package. We’ve designed Cruzer Contour for consumers who want personal storage with more style, speed and capacity."
Cruzer Contour will be available in the United States in March in three models with suggested retail pricing of $89.99 for 2GB, $149.99 for 4GB and $299.99 for 8GB. The drive will be available in the Middle East, Europe, Asia Pacific and Australia in the second quarter of 2007.
