Samsung has announced a business card sized SSD (Solid State Drive) which it calls SSD T3 and its 2TB. Cool right? but even more cool is the transfer speed of 450MBps and USB 3.1interface which comes with an in-built AES 256-bit encryption. Its features include;

- * Actual usable capacity may vary based on system settings. 1GB=1,000,000,000 bytes, 1TB=1,000,000,000,000 bytes
- ** The exact weight of the product may vary depending on each capacity model.
- *** Performance may vary depending on host configuration and user system environment.
The cost hasn’t been revealed yet but when Samsung launched the T1 portable SSD a year ago, it cost $600/120,000 Naira/60,000 KES so that might give you an idea of what to expect in terms of pricing but since there are different storage capacities, the pricing may just be more with higher storage capacity.
