New Lexar Flash Drive with Capacity Meter

Flash drive maker Lexar unveiled new USB flash drives as part of their existing JumpDrive lineup. The most interesting among these is the JumpDrive Mercury, a drive with an integrated capacity meter.

The JumpDrive Mercury, which will be available in 1GB and 2GB capacities, utilizes “Electronic Paper Display” technology from E Ink Corporation in the integrated capacity meter, which displays how much storage space is left on the drive without the need to plug it into a computer. The display is a paper thin and reportedly shatter proof, not relying on power to maintain capacity information.

Also announced today was the JumpDrive Fly, a very small sized USB flash drive with storage capacities of 256MB, 512MB and 1GB.

"As we continue to grow our popular line of USB flash drives, what is emerging is an offering that is innovative, diverse and unique, with a particularly strong focus on meeting the demands of today's multimedia applications and levering breakthrough technologies that will give our customers new levels of flexibility, functionality and confidence while using a Lexar drive," said Steffen Hellmold, vice president and general manager USB flash drive and OEM products business unit, Lexar. "We firmly believe our distributors and partners will share our excitement when they see Lexar's variety of premium quality drives, with competitive capacities and strong feature sets well beyond storage."
