Can somebody help me in undestanding the size limitations of a flash drive based on the current flash memory technology? All usb flash drives are no smaller than the width of the usb connector. Is the size of the USB connector the only thing limiting a flash drive from being even smaller. If an adapter was made to go from the usb connection down to a much smaller connection that would connect to a flash memory device just how small or skinny could we get here? All the pen flash drives that I have seen are all large in diameter. With the idea I just stated, could pen drives be made that are much smaller in diameter. This is just something I'm working on. Any info would be great.
