    The memorystick is absolutely tiny, about the size of a 5 Eurocent coin. The exact size is 26,8x12,2x1,9mm. the Pretec i-Disk diamond will have a data transfer rate of around 10MB/s. 128MB and 256MB variants should be available now for 24,99€ and 34,99€ while a 512MB and a 1024MB variant should be available in a few months.

    Finally - someone realizes that size really does matter. If the price is right on the 1gb stick, I'm getting one.

    I don't know how big that coin is, but I know that thing makes my Cruzer Micro look huge.
