Kingston took to this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) event to announce its highest capacity USB flash drive that is capable of storing up to 2TB of data. However, it doesn’t come cheap.

The portable storage drive cost a massive $2,273 and more than $1,000 for 1TB of storage which is relatively very expensive given that Samsung’s SSD drive with the same capacity costs just $800.
