ADATA UC360 Offers Type-C with USB 3.0 Backward Compatibility

ADATA UC360 is a unique new flash drive spotted at CES, which embraces the new USB Type-C connector for fast connectivity with newer generations of smartphones, tablets, and ultra-portables; and a standard Type-A connector on its other end, for backwards compatibility with older USB standards.
