Kingston has already announced the release of 256GB pen drive called Data Traveller 300, which is available in the market. The data transfer rates are upto 20MB/sec read and 10 MB/sec write. The company packs its own data encryption software with it and supports readyboost technology on Windows 7 and Windows Vista. I do think the price is too high at the moment for this high capacity pen drive. They are selling it for 775 Euro.

I know the capacity of the largest U-disk is Kingston DT15, its capacity up to 64GB. Data transfer rates up to 480Mbps, read and write performance is very excellent, in the 10M / S above, fully able to meet the needs of large-capacity data transmission.

As the other members have already said, I have seen the 128 and 256 Gb pendrives, in Delhi Pallika Bazaar. The only problem is, the higher the Gb, the longer it takes the system to read it and for you to go to your files or music or movies. Even though I have a 16 and 32 GB pen drive, I usually do not use them, and I always carry only 1 or 2 GB pedrives, because it can not only load faster, it can also give you instant results.

Hi! As of my knowledge there will a flash drive with capacity of 16GB, but I didn't see that yet. But I have used 8 GB flash drive which is very fine to me. The brand of flash drive I used is Panda. You can get more info related to flash drive and availability on internet.

There exists 128 and 256GB pen drives on the market from major manufacturers. But, before jumping to higher capacity, in terms of file transfer speed, you should wait USB 3.0 platform to penetrate. It's not so far from today. Lets say 3 to 6 months from now on. Though you need to buy a seperate USB 3.0 card for your today's pc, it promises 10x faster speeds with respect to USB 2.0.
