Lexar has launched what it claims is the first USB flash drive with a capacity meter in the UK – the JumpDrive Mercury.
The built-in capacity meter is based on Electronic Paper Display (EPD). The display is a paper thin, shatter proof and doesn’t rely on external power to provide the information. It also retains the information after being unplugged. The drive also features PowerToGo, which allows you to carry and access your PC programs wherever you are (rather like U3), plus there’s pre-loaded EverNote software, which is good for quickly capturing and storing information, along with advanced security, including encrypted areas and a file shredder feature for secure deletion.
The JumpDrive Mercury is available in 1GB and 2GB versions. Prices to be confirmed.
