    Super Talent Technology noted today that the company's new PICO series USB Flash drives have moved into mass production. Super Talent's new PICO series USB drives are manufactured using chip-on-board (COB) technology, meaning the unpackaged Flash die is bonded directly to the printed circuit board (PCB). COB technology enables Super Talent to fit up to 4GB of Flash storage in an incredibly small and slim case. PICO-A drives measure merely 38.7mm x 12.4mm x 3.9mm, and weigh less than 5 grams. The new PICO series is notable not only for its ultra-small size, but also for its fascinating style. The first two products in the PICO series both have polished chrome steel exteriors. PICO-A, shipping in volume now, has a swivel chrome lid. PICO-B is a retractable slide-open drive that will be shipping in volume by late November. All Super Talent USB drives are backed with a lifetime warranty. Approximate street prices on the 2GB and 4GB PICO-A drives is $25 and $45 respectively.

    yeah lol...

    I bought a 16mb memory stick in 2002 and it was over $150!!!!! haahaaa.

    Neat technology, it will make the stick a lot more robust if it is all bonded together on the one chip, that would probably explain the lifetime warrantee... :)
