Kingston Technology has announced the launch of the Kingston DataTraveler 200, apparently the world's first 128GB USB flash drive.

As well as the ability to carry "vast" amounts of data, the DataTraveler 200 provides users with the option to password protect their files, although with its £335 price tag, we'd imagine most users won't be letting the new drive out of their sight.

Kingston claims the 128GB capacity is good for up to 182 music CDs or up to 27 DVD movies and the drive is Windows ReadyBoost compliant.

The DataTraveler 200 is also available in 32GB and 64GB capacities which will set you back £63.55 and £111.16, while the 128GB-er will cost £334.22.
