SanDisk MobileMate Micro Reader – awesome tiny data store on a keychain

Sandiskmobilemate1

The SanDisk MobileMate Micro Reader is one gorgeous piece of gadgetry. It’s designed to read microSD and MemoryStick Micro memory cards via a standard USB port, but the real awesomeness of it comes from the fact that it’s so tiny you can attach it to your keychain and forget it’s there.

I just got one from eBay and shoved a spare 4GB microSD card in it for data emergencies, which is great, but what’s really cool is the fact that I can use the reader to instantly transfer photos, music or other data to and from the 8GB card in my Nokia N82 via a Mac or PC. This is a product I predict will become a de facto part of many people’s pocket clobber. Superb! $9.99. [Hat tip to Mark].

 The MobileMate Micro Reader accepts the following memory cards without the need for an adapter: – microSDHC – microSD – Memory Stick Micro (M2) Advanced Features and Benefits: * Hi-Speed USB 2.0 compatible transfer rates * No additional card adapters required * Easy to install and use * Compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000 and Mac OS X

  • I have had a cheaper version of this for a few months (this looks better as the plastic case on mine cracked very quickly) and it is very handy. It has been very useful many times and the most important thing is that I never have to remember to bring anything as it is always with me.
