Fountain Valley, CA – August 15, 2006 – Kingston Technology Company, Inc. today introduced the Kingston® DataTraveler® Mini Fun, the latest addition to Kingston’s family of DataTraveler USB Flash drives that boasts the industry’s smallest footprint for ultimate transportability. Measuring just 1.5 by .75 inches, the drive is approximately the length and width of two U.S. first-class postage stamps laid end to end. The Mini Fun is available in a variety of colors and in capacities up to 1 GB.
"The growing popularity of USB Flash drives has made them a must-have item among students and professionals alike,” said Joe Teng, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. “Now users can attach the Kingston DataTraveler Mini Fun to a keychain or mobile phone and have it available at any time to store and retrieve documents, photos, music, school assignments, reports or any other work in progress."
Kingston’s DataTraveler Mini Fun drives come preloaded with Big Fish Games’ Atlantis and Magic Vines gaming software. Atlantis is a game that takes the user on a trip to the 19th century, where as the head of a team of explorers on a classified mission, they must unlock the secrets of the long-lost city throughout 81 challenging levels. Magic Vines is a puzzle game, where users must travel the jungles and plains of the world, exploring each location by solving a series of increasingly difficult puzzle boards. Atlantis and Magic Vines are available in seven languages — English, French, Spanish, German, Korean, Japanese and Simplified Chinese. Each drive includes a “Quick Start Guide” that will instruct the user on how to install and launch the games on their computer.
"We are delighted Kingston has chosen to include Atlantis and Magic Vines software on the new Mini Fun USB drives," said Greg Enell, vice president, business development, Big Fish Games. "The drives enhance the gaming experience by enabling players to travel with their games and access them from virtually any computer, anywhere."
System requirements for Atlantis include a Pentium® II 400 MHz or faster processor, 128 MB of RAM, and a video card capable of 800x600 3D acceleration. Magic Vines requires a Microsoft® Windows 98 or higher operating system, Pentium II 400 MHz or faster processor, and 64 MB of RAM.
The DataTraveler Mini Fun is available now at www.kingston.com, or through retailers. Pricing starts at $15. The DataTraveler Mini Fun is backed by a five-year warranty and Kingston's legendary service and support.
