Lexar and Google Join Forces on USB Flash Drives
Lexar Media a leader in USB Flash Media announced that it is bringing Google applications directly to customers by including Picasa, Google Toolbar and Google Desktop Search applications on its line of popular USB flash drives. The offering is the first time consumers will be able to install Google applications from a USB flash drive directly to their desktop to edit photos, find files and search the web using popular Google applications. “While these popular applications have traditionally been available on the web directly from Google and other web affiliates, offering them on a Lexar JumpDrive provides a new channel to reach customers,” said Steffen Hellmold, vice president of USB flash drives at Lexar.
Consumers who purchase a Lexar Jumpdrive have to plug in the drive to the USB port and they will be prompted with instruction to install the applications. If the users chooses to install the applications are automatically removed from the Flash drive after installtion.
Lexar JumpDrive products with Google applications will be available worldwide beginning in January 2006.
