Pocketec Nano: 12GB drive similar to a Zippo lighter
Today, flash drives are becoming ever more capacious and cheaper, but manufacturers of products based on small format hard drives are not yet giving up.
It is the 1-inch HDD that is used in the Nano drive manufactured by the Korean company Pocketec. The novelty with its dimensions (38 x 48 x 15 mm) and design resembles the famous Zippo lighters.
The volume of the Nano is 12 GB. Implementation to a PC is carried out via the USB 2 interface.0. Among the compatible operating systems, the manufacturer calls Windows 98 / SE / ME / 2000/2021 server / XP / Vista and MAC OS 8.6+.
The price of the Pocketec product on the Korean market is about 160 euros, which is quite a lot. Let’s say a 12 GB LaCie Carte Orange 1.8 “hard drive will cost European buyers from 125 euros.
