New portable SSD from Western Digital

Both MacRumors as well as The Verge came in today with the news that Western Digital brings a new product on the market: a portable SSD called My Passport.

This is right after CalDigit’s announcement of their Tuff external harddrive. But while CalDigit offers lots of storage (2 TB) for a reasonable price, WD focuses on small, fast access to files; it comes in 256, 512 and 1024 GB (1 TB) sizes.

Best Buy lists the following prices: $99.99 for the 256 GB, $199.99 for the 512 GB and a pretty $399.99 for the 1 TB version.

It doesn’t seem to be more widely available at the moment, but if that happens then we’ll surely update you.
