Kingston, Paramount Join to Deliver Movies via Flash Drives
Kingston has announced its collaboration with Paramount Digital Entertainment (PDE) to deliver full-length movies on Kingston Flash memory products. These movies will be available to users “as part of a bundle package and for sale”. Paramount has claimed that as more and more movies are watched on portable devices like netbooks and handhelds, it’s only natural they form a strategic partnership with Kingston, the world’s largest independent manufacturer of memory products, to distribute its movies to the masses. Backed by a five-year warranty and 24/7 tech support, “Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen” (comes in a 4Gb Kingston DataTraveler I drive) is now on sale at all OfficeMax stores for USD$29.99.
