A 416GB flash drive--but probably not for you

Bitmicro's flash drives have capacity approaching that of conventional hard drives, but they're designed more for the military than for high-end PCs.

Enough with the eensy weensy flash memory drives such as Dell's 64GB model. It's time for a solid-state disk whose capacity is closer to a conventional hard drive with spindles and platters.

Bitmicro offers a variety of flash memory drives and will sell a 416GB model in March 2008. Bitmicro

Bitmicro Networks this week announced a 2.5-inch flash drive with a capacity of 416GB that will be available in March 2008.

Alas, though, the drive is geared for military, industrial and commercial users, not for arming high-end PC owners with bragging rights. Bitmicro's drive is designed to withstand shocks, vibration, and hot and cold temperatures.

Not being a conventional retail product, it's no surprise that Bitmicro didn't disclose a price. But given that the 64GB drive in Dell's Alienware PC costs $920 or so, I'm guessing that it's probably better to remain ignorant.

The company already sells 2.5-inch flash drives with capacities up to 74GB and 3.5-inch drives up to 156GB.
