This small box basically, can store four types of data – number (numeric), alphabets (alphanumeric), binary or byte data (information stored in digital format) and information in Japanese Kazi and Kana languages. Will you believe that his small black - white box can store 2-3 paragraphs or 4296 alphabets? Most you only want to store numbers than make it 7089. That means bruiser or small catalog of any company!! As it is capable of storing digital data, so it is possible to store any type of digital object in it.
