Columbus, OH (PRWEB) July 27, 2011
EMTEC, a leading manufacturer of USB flash drives and accessories, is proud to present a new series of fun and fashionable flash drives based on the famous Looney Tunes cartoon characters. Following the international success of the “Animal” flash drive range, EMTEC has designed each Looney Tunes flash drive to showcase its colorful, comical character in cute, miniature form. The first set in the ongoing series features Tweety, Sylvester, Speedy Gonzales and Tazmanian Devil.
Following the European launch in May, EMTEC will officially launch the Looney Tunes series in the United States in August 2011. OfficeMax®, one of the leading providers of office products and services to businesses of all sizes, will offer the Looney Tunes flash drives nationally through approximately 1,000 OfficeMax retail locations during a back-to-school promotion.
EMTEC will also launch an extensive online marketing campaign to promote the Looney Tunes flash drives, including videos, games, contests and a poll in which consumers can vote on the next four Looney Tunes characters to be developed into EMTEC flash drives.
Each EMTEC Looney Tunes USB flash drive features read speeds up to 15 MB/s and write speeds up to 5 MB/s. Available in a storage capacity of 4 GB, the drive features plug-and-play functionality with Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7; Mac OS 10.2.8 or higher; and Linux Operating Systems. Each Looney Tunes character is made out of rubber and comes with a matching cap holder, attachable to the drive with a small beaded chain to prevent cap loss while the flash drive is in use. Each character is less than two inches tall.
