ADATA S101 flash drive brings USB 3.0 speeds, shrugs off shocks and splashes

USB flash drives may not be the hottest tech hardware out there, but that doesn't mean they can't look good. ADATA's latest thumb drive refresh packs the same military-spec rough and tumble credentials of last year's S007, but this time it's guarding some USB 3.0 goodness. While the design of the S107 is nigh-on identical to its predecessor, it's now capable of read speeds of up to 100MB per second. The rubberized storage sticks, available in red and blue, will be available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB sizes, although ADATA is still keeping schtum on pricing and release dates.

ADATA Launches S107: Waterproof and Shock-Resistant USB Flash Drive

November 30 2011, London, UK: ADATA™ Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash application products, has launched a brand new USB 3.0 Flash drive, the S107.

The S107 offers a radical new approach to shock-resistant designs and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interfaces, with a sporty exterior and dynamic design – perfect for users who have active lives and a strong sense of style.

Engineered to Military Grade shockproof standards, the S107's exterior uses a unique silicon rubber material to ensure your data remains water resistant – perfect for travelling or working in challenging conditions.

Performance is lighting quick, with USB 3.0 read speeds of up to 100MB/second – allowing you to back up data almost 3 times quicker than with USB 2.0 interface.

The unique curved design is pleasing to both the hand and eye, while the vibrant colour combinations (Scarlet Red and Wild Blue) are guaranteed to generate interest from friends and colleagues. Even so, the design is functional, with a convenient slot at the back of the drive to hold the safety cap when it's not needed.

Initial capacities available will be 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB.
