Iocell Korea Introduces 16GB Thumb Drive

Shown at CeBIT, Iocell showed their 16 GB Celldisk at the CeBIT show. The drive is physically about the same size as any other flash drive. In addition to its size, it also supports USB 2.0.

I think these flash drives have somewhat of a dilemma right now. The consumer market for such a large capacity drive is probably fairly small, assuming it would be cost prohibitive as a replacement for current flash drive users. The largest market for this size of drive would be in mobile media devices. Now, if they can get the capacity up around 60-100 GB, they may start to emerge as HDD replacements. It may take a technological innovation or two in order to reach those sizes at a reasonable cost, but if it happens, small HDD’s could be on their way out.
