With USB flash drive prices hitting rock bottom, the devices have become a cheap commodity item with little, if any, technological difference between brands. Ennova's new ION flash drive, however, stands out from the crowd with its integrated OLED (organic light-emitting diode) touch screen.

Though details are scant, Ennova said the display will allow users to select files and initiate to-be-announced functions. The OLED touch screen can also double as a biometric fingerprint sensor that changes color to indicate if the print is authorized. A hinged cover is designed to protect the screen and USB port.

The company expects the first retail units to hit stores in early 2010, with pricing and capacity details unavailable at this time.
