SanDisk, the global inventor and largest supplier of flash storage cards, has released the latest, greatest version of its flagship USB flash drive, the Cruzer Contour, boasting a massive 32GB of capacity. The company also announced its 32 GB Ultra ll SD camera card.

The 32 GB Cruzer Contour features an engaging sleek and stylish black glossy design. To enhance its functionality it also includes a unique sliding USB connector which retracts into the body of the device. This innovative feature means there is no need for fiddly caps (which often get lost or mislaid) but offers total protection for the sensitive connector via the sliding cover mechanism.

Further comfort factors are provided by the lifetime limited warranty provided with every Cruzer Contour, which is also available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB which each offer a high performance USB drive with minimum read speed of 25MB per second. 

Other stunning features of the 32GB Cruzer Contour include AES hardware encryption and password protection, enhanced Windows ReadyBoost, increased system performance on Windows Vista and U3 Smart compatibility. In addition Carry and launch your personal applications and settings on any PC compatibility with Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Mac OS X v10.1.2+ and certified Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Mac OS X.

Meanwhile, the world-beating storage specialist has also released the SanDisk Ultra ll SD camera card, a high-quality card that users can trust with their precious memories. This high-speed card features superfast and impressive 15MB per second read and 9MB per second write performance.

The high performance SanDisk Ultra ll SD camera card eliminates delay when transferring data from camera to PC and boasts solid reliability supported by a lifetime limited warranty.

Tareq Husseini, SanDisk’s Middle East and Africa Sales Director, said: “This is a higher capacity card for capturing more photos and longer videos. It’s the most popular, most compatible memory format for digital cameras. In the past few years, the adoption of Secure Digital cards in DSLR cameras has been limited by speed, capacity and cost constraints. But when evaluating the declining cost trends for flash, and consumers’ increasing demand for storage there is an obvious need for the Ultra ll SD camera card.”

The newly-released Contour USB flash drive benefits from SanDisk’s proprietary U3 technology enabling users to carry files and software on a secure USB drive. Wallpaper, preferences, favorites, profiles, and more, in fact everything required for a familiar computing experience on any PC, anywhere. Along with files, users have constant access to U3 smart programs, while the U3 Launchpad allows total management of programs, from installing to launching to updating. Furthermore, the U3 platform supports hardware encryption and password protection.
