black for the 1GB version. When in use, the USB microSD Reader appears as a
separate drive letter (for example E:) and data transfer is as easy as drag and
drop. The USB microSD reader + card is ultra portable and with the included key
loop, can be hung from a mobile phone as a convenient digital data moving
solution.
