SanDisk today announced a new thumb drive that is one of the first to include an integrated USB Type C connector, the next-generation USB plug that’s expected to arrive soon on Android devices and an upcoming MacBook laptop.

SanDisk is releasing the device in anticipation of not only the upcoming 12-inch MacBook we’ve detailed extensively, but also a slew of smartphones and tablets that will adopt the new USB standard. The slimmer, reversible USB Type C design for the first time offers a solution slim and powerful enough to work for both mobile devices and PCs. A full-sized USB plug is on its other side.

For now, an Android companion app is available, but we can imagine Mac will be a focus shortly after the new MacBook arrives.

SanDisk’s Dual USB Drive with Type C Connector will be available with 32GB of storage when it becomes available sometime in Q2.
