Panram unveiled the G1-Flash Drive, its first major attempt at a flash drive. These compact, brushed aluminium-clad drives could be mistaken for cheap USB 2.0 sticks, but actually feature USB 3.0 interface, with standard and micro-USB connectors, on its ends. The drive supports USB OTG support, and can plug into compatible Android tablets and smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S5, with its USB 3.0 interface, should be able to munch into this drive's bandwidth. It comes in two capacities, 32 GB and 64 GB. The company also unveiled the Jewel line of super-compact USB 3.0 drives, which come in capacities of 32 GB, and various shiny body trims.
