Looks sweet. I want to see a picture of one with the connector slid closed.

I like the Silver one.

But honestly, I'm looking at 64GB.. 16GB is so last year.

Their xporter razzo, xt, and magnum have 32GB variants, wonder why this hit a wall at 16 :/

be warned though, unless I'm very very unlucky, these aren't washer/dryer-proof.
Lost a 16GB xt, got a razzo 32GB.

Doesn't look like the connector can be closed to me.

That means it should slide inside the device.

The reason these are capped at 16GB is because they are the Mini series, so they're much smaller than other flash drives.

And a little food for thought, the Magnums now come in a 128GB variant :p

ETA July 20th, and a 400$ price tag at Newegg. Insane.

But does anyone here remember when the PSP 1GB versions used to cost 50$ more than the ones without a card? And that was a bargain because 1GB cards were in the ~75$ range? Insane.
