We've seen a few 128GB flash drives surface in recent weeks, but if physical size matters more than capacity, you'll like the look of this:

That's a 16GB version of Buffalo Technology's ultra-compact RUF2-PS flash drive. It'll be available in black, white and red, measures 18mm x 18mm x 8mm, and weighs around three grams.

No word on pricing, but these are expected to appear as soon as next week.

Yes, these are alot smaller than the super talent ones, just look at the size of the connector ;)

I assume that all the chips are embedded in the plastic bit that sits in the middle of the USB connector. Otherwise I have no idea…
These are pretty tiny as well, are still 16GB and have very good access times

But for sheer size, I prefer this

It's a bit longer than a SIM card and about as thick as a 1p coin
