LaCie’s rugged USB3.0 drive and flash drives ‘CooKey’ and ‘WhizKey’ on display

by Gareth Mankoo

LaCie have given us something to look forward to after the incredibly little ‘Rikiki’ hard drive that we saw some time back. There are a couple of new offerings that go with equally outrageous names such as ‘CooKey’ and ‘WhizKey’. Both of these are flash drives that are waterproof and provide with data transfer speeds of up to 30 MB/s. These are available in 32 GB. The drives support Wuala’s online storage that allows 4Gb storage four 2 years. LaCie also announced the ‘Rugged’ 3.0 drive that has data transfer speeds of up to 110 MB/s.

The price of the Rugged USB 3.0 drive still has to be announced. While the flash drives cost $20 for the 4GB version and $100 for the 32 GB variant.
