Even if consumer migration to USB 2.0 is not yet complete, USB 3.0 sticks are out in the market, globally as a well as in India. The speeds are up to 10 times more than that of the USB 2.0 products–of the magnitude of 70 Mbps. And they are priced quite attractively.

Transcend, for example, has launched its 8GB, 16GB and 32GB products reportedly priced at Rs 1,300, Rs 2,000 and Rs 5,600.

These products are with entry-level specs. More advanced USB 3.0 sticks could be offering even higher data transfer speeds. Theoretically, the technology offers speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps, but speeds of up to 3 Gpbs are considered achievable. That would make it possible to transfer large video files in a jiffy, and would bode well for a growing digital imaging market.

The problem, however, is that it will be some more time before USB 3.0-based motherboards, PCs and other consumer devices start becoming commonly available.
