    Latest Tech News - Samsung releases best trade show tchotchke ever?

    BERLIN--OK, perhaps the headline is a bit of an exaggeration--I've seen companies give away hundreds of $1,000 SLRs at conferences. But I have to hand it to Samsung today at the IFA trade show here.

    To show off that it's entering the flash memory card market in the United States, the company created a customized miniature aluminum suitcase. Inside was a foam pad holding an SD card and a MicroSD card. Here's a video showing it all:



    The company presumably selected the design to impart a sense of ruggedness: the cards are billed as shockproof and waterproof.

    The suitcase even had little latches that flipped open once you pulled the release tabs apart. Fortunately the nine-button keypad, which measured about 3x4mm, was purely ornamental. I'm not a bad tiny-keyboard typist, but that would have been a bit much.
