Released in 2014, the SanDisk Ultra Dual USB 3.0 arrives in your second version and is a flash drive with USB 3.0 and micro USB ports. Already the iXpandTM is a USB flash drive for iPhone and iPad, allowing consumers to download content directly from a mobile device to a Mac or PC according to

The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB 3.0 Drive has warranty of 5 years, while the pendrive iXpand is ensured by two years. Both are already available in the Brazilian market. The first has the same suggested values of the 2014 version: R $69.90 (16 GB), R $119.90 (32 GB) and R $229.90 (64 GB). Already the iXpand can be found with suggested price of R $399.90 (16 GB), R $599.90 (32 GB) and R $779.90 (64 GB).

According to a survey conducted by IDC, estimates that this year people will capture and share 1.6 trillion, and that seven out of ten of these images will be captured in a mobile device. According to Alexander Jannoni, General Manager of SanDisk in Brazil, in conversation with the iG, this trend, pegged to the number of smartphones that are to be sold this year prompted the SanDisk to bring these releases soon. The iXpand was announcing in November last year while the Dual Drive was presented at CES in January 2015. “No one erases or likes to delete your images”, commented.

According to Ana Toiller, head of products and marketing at Latin America, two are the reasons that lead a user to get a pedrive for your smartphone or tablet: lack of space on the device and need to download something. “Today, most people download a file e-mailing itself, but with the files getting heavier because the cameras are best, is almost impossible to send a video by email, for example, the transfer became a problem”. And in Apple devices, this issue is even more challenging, since iPhones do not have memory card space, explained the Executive.

The Brazilian users still don’t feel entirely comfortable with the cloud computing and prefer to rely on a solution that does not rely on internet access according to Ana. “The cloud acts as a add-on. The majority of Brazilians still struggling to understand how this technology, and there’s also the matter of cost, there is little free fills the need. There is also the issue of now: one doesn’t want to wait to connect to get the presentation for the boss “.

Faced with the high capacity of Flash drives, Flash storage can easily be transformed into backup drives and even replace the traditional external HD. According to Alexander Jannoni, the flash memory of the pendrives have greater durability.

In addition, the USB port was stopped at several other equipment such as the car, for example, and must win other destinations like the fridge due to the growth of the Internet of things. These developments together from the USB port, which recently won a new version, the USB-C, must ensure a longer life to the pendrive, unlike what happened with the CD or floppy disk. “What happens today is that there’s nothing better than the flash memory, there’s nothing in development that can replace our technology”, explained the Executive.
