Kingston has announced 512GB and 1TB USB 3.0 flash drives, specced at 240MBps reads and 160MBps writes. There are some things left unanswered, though.
For a start, who's going to buy them? While the 1TB drive hasn't been priced yet (it'll be available in March), the 512GB has already been costed at a whopping US$1750. The next question is, who's going to carry something this chunky?
It's looking like the 1TB drive will have the same 72x26.94x21mm dimensions as the 512GB, but still — what's the appeal, when you can get a faster SSD and USB converter for less than half the price, that will more easily slip into your pocket?
Alas, such is the way of tech: someone has to go first so that the prices will eventually come down.
