Sony embraces USB-C with new compact flash drives

Sony may not have integrated USB-C connectivity into its mobile devices yet, but the Japanese company is embracing the new standard. It has this week announced a new lineup of compact flash drives that ship with both USB Type-C and Type-A connectivity.

Available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavors, the new flash drives are designed to work seamlessly not only with PCs powered by Mac, Windows, and Chrome OS — but also with Android smartphones and tablets carrying USB-C ports.

“This new USB is guaranteed to cover your additional storage needs for your devices including your Android tablet or your OS PC,” says Sony. “The USB market is developing and Sony has the storage solution dedicated to ensuring you are not losing your data between new devices.”

If you use USB-C and USB-A devices simultaneously, then — as many people do right now — then Sony’s new flash drives are ideal for transferring data between all of them. Its design also allows you to store the drive on a keychain so it’s always with you.

You’ll be able to pick up Sony’s new flash drive later this month, but there’s no word on how much it’ll cost just yet.
