    Verbatim launch the Pocket Drive, a stylish black 250GB portable 1.8" Hard Disk Drive which is small enough to slip easily into a trouser or jacket pocket but, has the storage capacity to empower mobile users to download memory intensive multi-media content whilst on the move. The Pocket Drive will soon be available in retail, priced £99.99(RRP).

    The Pocket Drive, despite being about the size of a pack of playing cards, benefits users not only with its storage capabilities but, also offers pre- installed backup and synchronisation software. The Dmailer backup software with data encryption can be used to enable secure backups whilst the Verbatim Sync software allows data between PC and external drive to be synchronised with ease. The Sync software works with all file types and provides synchronisation of mail boxes and web site details, such as browser favourites.

    Weighing just 85g, the sleek 1.8" Pocket Drive allows you to carry 250GB of data with you wherever you go - that's equivalent to 113,636 photos, 62,500 MP3 music files or 500 videos. Cased in an attractive black aluminium housing, the Pocket Drive has stylish form as well as professional function

    The Pocket Drive is compatible with the Windows 7, Vista and XP operating systems. A reassuring blue LED light on the front of the drive is illuminated when data is being transferred.

    "With our Pocket Drive, we are satisfying the needs of users who require lots of storage capacity in a compact, stable and stylish device," explains Kai Miroschnik, Business Development Manager HDD Verbatim EUMEA.
