Brightpoint Adds the New 2-Gb SanDisk Cruzer Titanium for Business and Power Users to Its Portfolio

  • 18 May, 2005 11:21

<p>SanDisk doubles the capacity and strengthens its Cruzer Titanium line with Liquidmetal's advanced titanium alloy</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, May 18, 2005 – Brightpoint, Australia’s leading distributor and 3rd party logistics provider with products in every major wireless, telecommunications and data device product category, has added the new Cruzer Titanium from SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) to its product portfolio.</p>
<p>“The new 2-gigabyte (GB) Cruzer Titanium offers extraordinary mechanical strength, style and encryption software to safeguard important data,” said Ettore Alterisio, Manager, Product Marketing, Brightpoint. “It adds a new dimension to our award-winning line of SanDisk portable flash drives and will appeal to the high end of our customer base,” he added.</p>
<p>A sleek, USB 2.0 hi-speed flash storage drive, Cruzer Titanium is virtually indestructible and designed to physically protect the valuable data of business and power users.</p>
<p>The new product is being manufactured using an advanced titanium alloy from Liquidmetal Technologies, commonly used for aerospace, medical devices, sporting goods and other applications that require lightweight strength and the ability to withstand extremes of temperature. This unique alloy is said to be approximately 2.5 times the strength of titanium. Its superior strength, hardness, high corrosion and wear resistance make it ideal for the Cruzer Titanium.</p>
<p>Cruzer Titanium is preloaded with the full versions of value-added portable software programs. These include CruzerLock2, a data file encryption program; CruzerSync, which synchronises with Outlook data; and Cruzer PocketCache, which allows for file backups with minimal memory consumption.</p>
<p>“Consumers are demanding higher capacities to store a diverse range of files and materials including high-resolution digital photos, digital music, video clips, presentations and other data that require large capacities,” said Mike Morganstern, Cruzer product marketing manager at SanDisk. “The 2 GB Cruzer Titanium meets these capacity requirements and combines the highest levels of data protection with an award-winning industrial design.”</p>
<p>Cruzer Titanium is “plug and play” with PCs and the Macintosh due to USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) compliance when used with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Mac OS 10.1.2+ and Mac OS 9.2.1+. A driver can be downloaded for Windows 98SE support.</p>
