SanDisk today introduced the Waterproof(1) USB Drive, a new line of rugged flash drives aimed at original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) targeting the health care market. Small enough to be worn all day as a necklace or kept on a key chain, the Waterproof USB Drive will be available to OEM customers in capacities of 64, 128, 256 and 512MB and 1GB. The Waterproof USB Drive lets consumers and patients carry their medical records (including both text-based and visual information like MRIs and photographs) with them in a rugged yet wearable USB device that can be used with any computer equipped with a USB port. At 55.7 x 19.0 x 7.9 mm and just 11.5 grams, the Waterproof USB drive is small enough to wear comfortably all day on a neck strap or a key chain. The Waterproof USB Drive is available to OEM manufacturers now in sample quantities, with full production scheduled for May 2005. Volume pricing to OEM customers is expected to range from $ 15.55 for a 64MB drive to $ 95.20 for a 1GB drive.
