Sony has announced the 8GB Micro Vault ?Midi?, doubling the maximum capacity available in its line-up of USB flash storage devices. The new Micro Vault is capable of holding over 2,000 MP3 songs or high definition images, or more than 20 hours of MPEG4 video footage. In addition, pre-installed Virtual Expander compression software allows users to store up to three times more data.

Micro Vault Midi models now incorporate a retractable USB connector port, which features an extendable connector for plug and play functionality. An LED indicator signals ongoing read/write operation, and is built into the semi-transparent slide button. The Midi range is available with capacities of 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and now 8GB from November 2006, with a Hi-Speed USB interface for faster transfer of large files. Product colour coding throughout the MICRO VAULT ranges attributes a specific colour to each storage capacity that is reflected on the packaging as well as the capacity indication on the product. ?
