Sony announces new CA1 flash drive series, supports Type-A and Type-C ports


Sony over the weekend announced a new series of flash drives that support USB Type-A and Type-C ports.

The first in the series is the USM-CA1, which is a dual-sided flash drive with Type-C on one end and Type-A on the other. It’s much more compact than your standard flash drive, and features up to 130MB/s in transfer (read) speeds.

Sony says that its USM-CA1 flash drive is compatible with Windows, Android, Mac, and Chromebook platforms, though this is no doubt the case with the entire CA1 flash drive series.

Sony’s new flash drives will be available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options. This specific drive, the USM-CA1, doesn’t seem to have gone up for sale yet, though Sony mentioned it would be available sometime in February.

We’ll probably hear more details on pricing and availability later this month, during or sometime after Sony’s press conference at MWC 2016 on February 22.

Are you interested in this new flash drive from the company?
