Some other specs include a USB 2.0/1.1 interface and they are compatible with both Mac and PC. The Helios 101 will be available in the next few weeks in just two color options. Apple green and ocean blue. Nothing on pricing yet, but they should be on par with other flash drive of the same sizes.
When I was shopping for my DSRL camera, I shied away from those that needed a CF card for storage. The CF card is faster and you can get them in very high capacities, but they cost more than comparable SD card. Not to mention I have a hoard of SD cards already.
If you are the CF type, Silicon Power has unveiled the world’s first 128GB 400x CompactFlash card. The card can write at up to 90MB/sec. It supports PIO Mode-6 and Multi-word DMA 4 transfer modes.
