  • 08 January, 2008 09:30

<p>Presenting DataTraveler 101 Limited Edition 2GB USB Drive</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – January 8, 2008 – Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, begins the year of the rat with the special edition of DataTraveler 101, a 2GB fun thumb drive adorned with a Chinese painting pattern on a golden background. The USB drive is only available in APAC region during this Chinese holiday season in limited supply.</p>
<p>Once again, inspired by the Chinese Zodiac, Kingston decked out this limited edition DataTraveler 101 with an adorable rat and Chinese characters “Wu-Zi”, representing the year of 2008. First in the cycle of 12 Chinese horoscopes, Rat Year begins the sequence and recurs every twelfth year, and is also a year of hope, cleverness and brightness. Therefore the USB drive is colored with a golden rat, which is a symbol of brightness, value and the fortune, washing away all of the tears and sorrows in 2007 and bringing the good luck and peace in 2008.</p>
<p>“Apart from the artistic pattern, the DataTraveler 101’s design reduces the drive’s overall size which allows for easy and unobtrusive transport in a pocket or attached to a keychain,” said Vaughan Nankivell, regional manager, Australia/New Zealand, Kingston. “Featuring bonus password protection software, the DT 101 Limited Edition is the perfect solution for storing image files and documents,” Nankivell added.</p>
<p>Offering style, function and affordability, the DataTraveler 101 limited edition is also fully compliant with high-speed USB 2.0 specifications, which makes the transfer of files and documents fast and convenient. As with all Kingston USB drive products, the DataTraveler 101 Chinese New Year Limited Edition carries a fully guaranteed five-year warranty.</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
