If only you could use this little dongle to turn your mobile into an actual USB Flash Drive – that way you could transfer all your photos and tunes and save all manner of other stuff simply by plugging the phone into your computer. Unfortunately, the Phonebook Flash Drive is purely for transferring the contents of your phonebook (both phone and SIM info) onto your computer. It’s still a neat idea – that way you can edit your addressbook and also keep a copy backed up on your computer – but going the whole hog would have made it perfect for these new music phones and hard drive phones that are beginning to crop up. Available for Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson for $20.50.
