Store Digital Data, Photos and Files in Your Pocket with SimpleTech Bonzai

8/1/2002 - SimpleTech launched the Bonzai USB Mini-Drive, the smallest portable, removable flash storage solution currently available for downloading, storing and transferring data between digital devices. Measuring just 2.5-inches x 1.3-inches x 0.25-inches (LWD), Bonzai offers storage capacity of 90 floppy disks in a sleek form factor that can be conveniently carried in your pocket, purse or briefcase.

Bonzai's patent-pending technology is a breakthrough in convenience and capacity. Storage is increased by simply upgrading the removable SD or MMC flash card inside, for easy and affordable expansion. Business documents, school projects, digital pictures, MP3 music, or streaming audio and video clips can be stored on Bonzai, conveniently carried, and then shared with coworkers, classmates, friends or family.

Bonzai plugs directly into a PC or Macintosh USB 1.1 port — the standard connection found on desktop and laptop computers since 2000 — for safe, fast file transfer at 1.5MB/sec., or the flash card can be inserted into a PDA, smart phone, MP3 player, digital still or video camera, or any other device that uses an SD or MMC card. Bonzai's direct transfer capability eliminates the need for external cables, cords or cradles, as well as the security risks and slow download times frequently encountered with e-mail or other Internet protocols.

Compatible with Windows 98SE/2000/MC/XP and MacOS 8.6+ operating systems, Bonzai can store Word(TM) documents, PowerPoint(TM) presentations, spreadsheets, digital photo and music files, and streaming audio and video clips, providing a complete drive environment that does not require batteries, external power or additional cables or adapters.

"Bonzai is the ultimate digital convergence device, offering easy and upgradable data storage and file transfer capabilities. Portable, powerful and versatile, Bonzai breaks users free from the one megabyte capacity limitations of floppy disks, the time-consuming task of burning data onto a CD, and the Zip disk's requirement for additional hardware," said David Abbott, flash product manager for SimpleTech. "Bonzai demonstrates SimpleTech's continued commitment to bringing innovative, cost-effective products to market that offer superior reliability and flexibility."

Bonzai is available in capacities of 64MB to 512MB. Manufacturer's suggested retail prices are $79.95 for 64MB and $119.95 for 128MB. For additional product information, visit
