Imation Atom Flash Drive Powers Up to 8 GB

Still just as small as a paperclip, Imation enhances its range of ultra small flash drives.

Bracknell, United Kingdom, August 01, 2008 --( Imation, a world-wide leader in removable data storage, introduces the 8GB capacity version of the Imation Atom Flash Drive providing greater storage capabilities to its range of 1GB, 2GB and 4GB ultra small flash drives. The Imation Atom Flash Drive family has proved to be popular among flash users and has been enhanced to provide the additional flexibility to meet all their personal and business needs.

Compact but incredibly durable, the 8GB Atom is designed and tailored to fit the capacity, security and performance requirements of today’s mobile professionals. Proved in rigorous testing, the Imation Atom Flash Drive has been certified by SGS Reliability Laboratory to be both waterproof and dustproof, guarding valuable data no matter what variable conditions might be experienced in transit.

The Imation Atom Flash Drive is not just physically well-protected by its aluminium casing; password and drive partitioning means stored data is readily secured against access by unauthorised users. A key chain makes it simple to attach the Atom to a briefcase or laptop bag to ensure the tiny flash drive doesn’t get lost.

Compatible with Windows Ready Boost, the Imation Atom Flash Drive can be used to accelerate system performance, as well as store and transport data, and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating platforms.
