Force Media JF-UFDP4S Flash Drive Plugs Directly to Your Portable Devices

Here's a unique USB flash drive, which has both standard and micro USB type-A connectors, that allow you to plug it to both PCs with standard USB ports, and portable devices such as smartphones and tablets, which have micro-USB ports. The JF-UFDP4S from Force Media, is what its makers are referring to as the "Perfect Media". It provides 4 GB of storage, over both interfaces, and talks to hosts over USB 2.0 (480 Mb/s).

It is a conventional-looking capped bar design, only that both its ends are capped, with a connector on each end. To prevent misplacing caps, each cap can be attached to the top of the other cap, on the other end of the drive. When plugged in via its standard connector, it works as a normal USB Mass Storage device, while with its micro-USB interface, it works plug-and-play with Android driven smartphones, tablets, and smart portable media players that have USB OTG support. Measuring 18.0 x 73.1 x 9.2 mm (WxDxH), it weighs about 39 g. Its main body is covered with a sheet of aluminum. Slated for mid-April, the JF-UFDP4S from Force Media is priced at 1,980 JPY (US $24).

What you forgot to mention or what might not have been clear is that this only works on Android phones with USB on the go (USB OTG) support and potentially the same applies to some tablets that only has a micro USB port. Also, have you seen an Apple device with a micro USB port, as in ever?

Just the other day I was telling a Co-Worker how I wished someone would invent something like this.

I wish someone would invent an icecream that you can eat all day everyday and never get fat, never get brain freeze, and never feel any ill effects from the lactose!

This is a great news! We will have more options than just a standard USB 2.0 port. Unfortunately, why it does not support for USB 3.0 interface.
