Gizmodo EIC Annalee Newitz has waxed poetic about her Android-compatible flash drive, and now we’ve found a terrific deal today on the exact same model. So why would you want one of these things?
The awesome part is that it has a micro USB connector on one side, and USB 3.0 on the other. Perfect for moving all the pictures and vids from my phone to another machine. I always carry a spare flash drive with me, and this was a big upgrade — mostly because I’m sick of uploading files from my phone to Dropbox or Drive in order to get them onto my laptop. I want to save things locally, not pass them through somebody else’s server farm.
I’d also add that these are great for storing movies and other media for long trips, especially if your phone or tablet is running low on storage. But whatever your motivations, we don’t know how long this deal is set to last, so grab one while you can. There are also smaller capacities available at lower price points, but this is a match for the best deal we’ve ever seen on the 64GB model. [Corsair Flash Voyager Go 64GB, $27]
If you’re an iOS owner, you’re not out of luck, as SanDisk Connect 64GB flash drive is also marked down to an all-time low $50 today. It doesn’t have a microUSB or Lightning connector, but it can create its own ad-hoc Wi-Fi network. Just connect the device of your choice, and you can transfer files back and forth wirelessly. It’s like a tiny little NAS that fits in your pocket! [SanDisk Connect 64GB, $50]
