Companies keep making claims of smallest this and biggest that, so we’re never really sure of anything. But as far as small USB sticks are concerned, this one from company Deonet seems like it might take the cake. Measuring 19.5 x 14.5 x 2.9 millimeters, it’s hardly bigger than a fingertip and comes in 4GB , 8GB and 16GB capacities. It accomplishes the small size through the use of a “Micro UDP chip (where UDP stands for the USB Disk In Package assembly process, which sees the controller, flash IC, substrate and passive components molded into a very small, single package), which is less than half the physical size of other USB memory solutions.”
There’s no word on price just yet, but the flash drive should be available this January.
