Flash drives have been around for ages and ages, but the newer USB 3.0 ones are still taking shape. Sony's joining the group with a new Micro Vault MACH, which is the first SuperSpeed USB drive from the company. It's available in 8GB/16GB/32GB/64GB sizes, and supports transfer speeds up to 120MB/sec (read) and 90MB/sec (write). It's encased in aluminum, and sports a retractable USB connector and LED indicator.
Of course, the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports, and it comes with a few pieces of software for those who are into that kind of thing. It's available now, but no pricing is being made public just yet.
