It wasn't too long ago that I would have thought of a dual USB/MicroUSB flash drive as a dream accessory. Now the landscape has changed so quickly, I'm nearly embarrassed that I have yet to buy one. When we first heard about the Leef Bridge Dual-USB/MicroUSB flash drive, the idea was still novel enough that its quirky name wasn't off-putting. Since then the more traditional players have jumped into the ring, with SanDisk and Sony both coming out with their own drives. Now add Kingston's name to that list. Its DataTraveler microDuo is available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB doses.

One side of the flash drive can plug into your PC while the other goes into your phone (though not at the same time). This allows you to move files between devices without having to rely on an internet connection, even if your handset doesn't have a microSD card slot. Your phone will still need to run Android 4.0 or higher and have USB OTG support in order to enjoy the gadget, so before you run out to get one, be sure to hit up this compatibility list beforehand.
