LaCie announced two designer USB Hubs for mobility and desktop convenience – LaCie Core4 and LaCie Core7 USB Hubs, Design by Sam Hecht. Modeled after Hecht’s award-winning LaCie Little Disk, the LaCie Core4 and LaCie Core7 incorporate built-in cables that are ideal for convenience and utility, while preserving a clean, thin, and elegant exterior.

The LaCie Core4 includes four USB ports, three external USB and a built-in mini-USB cable. Resembling the shape of a small matchbox, the LaCie Core4 USB Hub is easily transportable and perfectly suited for peripheral connectivity on the go. Simply push and slide open the product “core,” to access and extract two USB cables – One is a mini-USB cable, which enables users to connect or charge mobile devices like digital cameras, external hard drives or cell phones, without carrying an extra cable. The other is a standard USB cable for connecting the Core4 to your PC or Mac – so the cables go wherever it goes.

For peripheral power-users, the LaCie Core7 offers a sleek desktop form factor, with six USB ports, as well as the built-in extractible mini-USB cable for mobile device connectivity and charging. Designed for usability, the LaCie Core7 positions one USB port on top for USB flash drives or quick-and-easy port access. An additional five ports are conveniently disguised beneath the product platform to accommodate more peripherals. The LaCie Core7 also includes channels to keep cables organized for an aesthetic looking desktop. Similarly, the Core7 includes a built-in standard USB cable for conveniently connecting to a PC or Mac. To power the Core7, it includes a power supply.

“When it comes to USB hubs, convenience and aesthetics matter. LaCie has leveraged the beauty of Sam Hecht’s design while adding entirely new functionality,” said Alexis Kobassian, Product Manager, LaCie. “The Core4 and Core7 include a built-in mini-B cable to allow users to charge and access data from their favorite mobile devices, without keeping tabs on the cable. Now that’s smart.”

Designed by Sam Hecht for style and simplicity, the LaCie Core4 and LaCie Core7 USB hubs are sure to enhance usability for travelers and home users inundated with USB peripherals.

The LaCie Core4 and LaCie Core7 are available in 3 different colors: Warm Gray, Blue and Orange, and the LaCie Core7 is available in Warm Gray, and can be purchased through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Reseller+ or LaCie Storage Partner starting at the suggested retail price of $9.99 for the LaCie Core4 and $19.99 for the LaCie Core7.

Imation Launches New Apollo External Hard Drive Products

Innovative Apollo Expert and Pro external hard drives deliver portability, connectivity and leading edge capacities up to 1.5 TB for digitally-driven users

Imation Corp. today announced two new products in its Apollo(TM) family of external hard drives (EHD). First, the 2.5-inch Apollo(TM) Expert, a line of pocket-sized, portable EHDs sheathed in a protective skin that looks just as striking vertically or horizontally on their integrated swivel stands. Next, the Apollo(TM) Pro, a line of 3.5-inch EHDs that keeps impressive data capacities and stands out on the desk. The Apollo Pro line today debuts the Apollo(TM) Pro WX, adding certified USB wireless capability for users who want to clear the cords from their workspace. Imation will display its Apollo external hard drives at the Pepcom(R) Holiday Spectacular! event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan tonight from 6-9 p.m.

“We design our Apollo EHDs to be utilitarian and iconic,” said Subodh Kulkarni, vice president, Global Commercial Business, R&D and Manufacturing, Imation. “Utilitarian, because Apollo drives deliver the features and pure data storage performance that users need and crave; iconic, because Apollo drives simply look very good. Both lines provide a unique mix of features and benefits in both portable and desktop options, and Imation’s Apollo Pro line offers consumers the Apollo Pro WX – an easy-to-use EHD that enables a cable-free, hassle-free workspace.”

The Apollo Expert and Pro lines boast parallels and differences to satisfy the individual needs of users relying on proven data storage. Line similarities include integrated stands for vertical or horizontal orientation, low capacity/data activity indicator lights for easy identification of data processes with built-in sleep mode for energy conservation and one-touch, backup sync buttons for easy-to-use, automatic backup of data, photos, music and videos. Both lines are compatible with PC or Mac computers.

Conversely, feature differences among the products make them as unique as the products’ users. For example, the Apollo Expert UX provides portability and a leading-edge 2.5-inch form factor, along with a protective skin to prevent scratches and abrasions; whereas the Apollo Pro UX provides techno-savvy desktop users with a new-generation 3.5-inch durable form factor. The Pro line also delivers a unique solution for those on a mission to conquer cable clutter. The Apollo Pro WX, a certified wireless USB device, is ideal for clearing cords from your workspace. In addition to combining mass storage capability, the Apollo Pro WX provides users the convenience and security of wired USB and unique auto backup software for easy backup scheduling, synchronization and restoration functions.

“With the launch of its new Apollo family, Imation provides the depth and breadth to an external hard drive line that can meet the demands of most users,” said Wolfgang Schlichting, research director, IDC. “Imation is focusing on design and function to address the specific needs to store, access, connect and protect data in desktop and mobile environments. With its new certified wireless USB storage device, Imation enables wireless connectivity, a feature that will become popular in many personal storage devices in the next few years.”

Availability

The new Imation family of Apollo Expert and Pro external hard drive lines will be available in Q4 2008 in capacities ranging from 250 GB to 1.5 Terabyte through authorized Imation distributors, wholesalers, resellers and e-tailers worldwide. For additional information on Imation’s complete family of Apollo products visit http://www.imation.com/.

About Wireless USB Certification

Imation’s Apollo Pro WX wireless USB product certification is through the USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum, Inc.), who define and test wireless USB products to acceptable levels of performance. This certification also grants Imation the right to license the USB-IF wireless logo. For more information on USB-IF, visit http://www.usb.org/.
