To individual consumer solutions that meet the demands of users looking for easy and efficient ways to store, transport and access their data and applications on various PCs. USB flash drives are fast becoming essential computer tools, having evolved from a simple storage medium to an advanced personal storage device that expands and enhances the entire PC experience by letting users run a wide variety of software applications from the device itself. For example, Lexar recently introduced its PowerToGo software, a major breakthrough in mobile computing. The innovative PowerToGo software lets users virtually "carry" and access their familiar PC environment by installing and running many standard Windows applications directly from their flash drive.

Lexar's sponsorship of the Imagine Cup 2006 competition reflects the growing importance of the company's advanced products to worldwide development. For instance, Lexar USB flash drives have proven particularly useful in developing countries, where an entire village or community may only have access to shared computers or only a single computer. In this type of environment, each individual who uses the computer can benefit from having his or her own personal USB flash drive, which can be loaded with software applications and documents.

Lexar JumpDrives have evolved allowing users to run a variety of applications from the drive itself, opening up a new realm of possibilities. We are looking forward to how the students competing in the Imagine Cup 2006 will use our JumpDrives, and we're looking forward to being inspired ourselves!"
