Kingston DT Micro Duo MicroUSB/USB Drive is Tiny Awesome
A USB thumb drive for your phone.
It was day zero, or press day, which always plays host to Digital Experience, Pepcom's pre-CES showcase for some of the hottest products at the convention. Right in our line of vision, as soon as we walked in the door, was Kingston.
Kingston announced a few new products for CES this year. First up is the DT Micro Duo, which is a USB stick with support for both MicroUSB and regular USB. Available in 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB capacities, we saw this little guy in action with a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The Kingston rep played back The Avengers movie right from the 'stick' (it's more of a nub), and there was no lag or latency issues. The movie played back smoothly.
Though the DT Micro Duo was on show at CES, it's not actually available yet, and Kingston didn't have any details for us on pricing. We do know that it will be out before the end of Q1 so we won't be waiting long for more news on this one.
