Computex is an annual computer and technology event that is held in Taipei and is regarded as one of the largest technology trade shows in the world. Kingston has taken the opportunity to unveil their latest USB storage device, 'DataTraveler microDuo 3C'.
The DataTraveler microDuo 3C is a fairly unique USB flash drive that offers support for the traditional USB Type-A and the newly released USB Type-C. While USB Type-C devices are still scarce, Apple's latest Macbook, Google's Chrome Pixel and a few other manufacturers are embracing the new port which will likely become standard on all devices in the next couple of years.
Kingston's DataTraveler microDuo 3C will be available in three sizes: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The drive will offer support for USB 3.1 and have a maximum read speed of 100MB/s and a write speed of 10MB/s. Naturally, the USB Type-A portion of the device will be backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports. Kingston will also back the device with a five year warranty. Currently, Kingston has not offered pricing on the DataTraveler microDuo 3C.
