Transcend has announced the launch of its latest tiny USB flash drive-JetFlash T3. Measuring only 30.2-by-12.3-by-2.4mm, the T3 is compact, and only weighs a mere 2g. Unlike other miniature USB flash drives which are fragile and bend or break easily, the JetFlash TM T3 is designed to be extra-rugged, the company says.

Using a special COB (Chip On Board) manufacturing technique that moulds the memory chip and circuit board into the drive's unbreakable Polycarbonate casing, the T3 is more solid and robust than even full-sized flash drives. JetFlash T3's durability and tiny footprint allows it to be carried in places where ordinary flash drives just do not fit. It can be used as a mobile phone dongle or a keychain accessory, and can be stored safely in a wallet without risk of compression damage.

Transcend's T3 comes in 1GB and 2GB versions, and is made with brand-name NAND Flash chips to assure the high quality and long-life data retention. Carrying an ultra-compact flash drive on your cell phone or keychain means you will have it with you at all times to easily store, swap, and share your documents, pictures, music, and video clips whenever the mood strikes you.

Even though the T3 is amazingly small, no adapter is needed to connect to your computer-the T3 is the perfect size and thickness to fit securely into any USB slot. The JetFlash TM T3 also works with Transcend's own JetFlash elite data management tools that run directly from the T3 without having to install any software on your PC, so you can conveniently use the software on any computer you plug your T3 into.

JetFlash elite, which is available for download on the Transcend website, focuses on the needs of the mobile computer user, and is specifically developed to help you manage your data and increase productivity while on the go. Not only is the JetFlash T3 the most durable ultra-compact flash drive around, it is also backed by a lifetime warranty.

JetFlash T3 is fully USB 2.0 compliant with easy plug and play installation and it works with Transcend's JetFlash elite software tools.

Pricing of JetFlash T3 (1GB) is Rs. 650 + taxes and JetFlash T3 (2GB) is Rs. 1025 + taxes
