Transcend is bustin' a play at Sony's Microvault line-up of tiny USB flash drives. As such, they want you to know that their new JetFlash T2K drive weighs just 2-grams. Not bad, but still 33% heavier than Sony's little 1.5-gram whisps of colorful NAND. Still, just like the rest, it is small, damn small. So small that you'll be happy to strap on a lanyard to safeguard the ¥3,980 ($33) / ¥6,980 ($58) / ¥10,800 ($89) you just dropped on the 1GB / 2GB / 4GB models, respectively. Kind of defeats the whole "lightweight" sales pitch, eh? Add an RFID locator tag and give us a call, mkay?

Update: Thanks Sam K for pointing out in the comments that Transcend's US store sells the 1GB / 2GB / 4GB models for $15.90 / $25.10 / $48.30 (pre-tax), respectively.
