    Team Group Inc. announced that they are going to display the all new C117 delicate flash drive at the Middle-East’s largest consumer exhibition – GITEX. C117 is created targeted at the stylish men, made with one-piece stainless steel materials; in order to stress the unique metropolitan style, its surface is specially processed with high-tech 3D titanium coating, allowing it to have features such as wear-resistance, scratch-resistance and anti-fingerprint etc., and uses a restrained and calm black color appearance to display attractive personal style.

    As 3C products gradually made into boutiques, in addition to being committed to the development of high performance products, Team Group’s R&D team also pondered more diverse surface processing and material applications for different regions. The all new C117 is a portable storage product that is created for metrosexual men; it uses a USB2.0 interface with storage capacity selections ranging from 2~16 GB. The only 6 gram lightweight feature makes it extremely to carry with; the excellent black titanium color shows the unique confidence and outstanding style of modern metropolitans.

    My thoughts exactly! 3D Titanium-coated Black Flash Drive indeed! Anyway, we know they are out of date... WHITE is the new black.

    What? R&D and PR teams obviously lost the plot.

    lol, that was good for my first laugh of the day

    this company has a lot to learn about marketing. that announcement was all jacked up even if they are focusing on looks

    I care about performance first, features second, and looks third

    even if it did make sense 6g is hardy a back breaker. In fact i wish they made them heavier and made more solid.

    Anyone else notice that the maximum capacity in the press release is 16GB, but the pic shows a 32GB model? Their marketing department really needs to get their act together.

    Now I have seen it all....

    Wow, talking about over-reaching. Marketed towards metrosexual and stylish men specifically? Seriously? :banghead: Ok, lets talk about reliability and performance and THEN if you want to bling it out fine. Heck, I am a full blown gay male and it does not appeal to ME. I want performance and reliability for the best price possible...not bling to appeal to "metrosexuals" who are just cheap fakes trying to imitate folks like me! :p
