Still on the East Side
Taiwanese company PQI (Power Quotient International) has this week announced a new flash drive, the compact and sleek i817L which features a capless design with a little twist. The twist is the spring-like mechanism which pulls the USB connector inside the drive's casing as soon as the device is disconnected from a PC or Mac.

The i817L makes use of chip-on-board (COB) technology so it's also waterproof, dustproof, and resistant to (most) shocks. This drive measures 48.63 (L) x 13.4 (W) x 5.6 (H) mm, has a USB 2.0 interface, is backed by a three-year warranty, and comes in three colors (spray white, ocean blue, coral pink) and four capacities (4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB). Unfortunately PQI didn't announce any prices.

LG (at least in the beginning) stood for "Lucky Goldstar" :laugh:
