A golden rule of most manufacturers of various electronic products is to try and take advantage of the success of a certain platform by launching several products based upon it. And that seems to be exactly the case with the Mobile Disk S2 series of USB Flash drives presented by TwinMos in the first half of 2007, a family of devices that are closely related to the S1 drives, with a few important differences.
Much as in the case of the Mobile Disk S1 series, the Mobile Disk S2 flash drives have a rather unusual and somehow attractive design, the storage solutions featuring a cap designed to be able to click on the bottom of S2, thus allowing users to use it freely and forget about the possible problems caused by losing the respective component.
However, the S2 model provides a lot more than a cool external design, since it's available in 512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB versions, thus covering all the specific segments of the USB flash drives' market. Moreover, as most other modern USB drives, the device comes packed with its own password protection software, and is completely plug and play. Furthermore, it connects to a host computer via an USB 2.0 interface, which means that it can attain a maximum data transfer rate of around 480 Mbps, and doesn't require any external power sources.
The TwinMos drive works with the most popular operating systems on the market, including here Windows 98/ 2000/ ME/ XP/ Vista, Mac 10.1+, Linux 2.4+, has a working temperature range of 0 – 70 Celsius degrees and is quite portable, measuring around 73.3 x 19.1 x 10.8 mm, which makes it a bit bulkier than the previous S1 model.
