Shenzhen is well known for locally produced and customized technology. From custom cell phones to personalized push buttons, you can find it in Hua Qiang Bei.
Sjaak found a building that consists entirely of USB flash disk sellers. There’s a huge selection of colorful silicone housing. Just pick one and the dealer pops a 4 or 8 gig flash drive inside.
Here’s just a sampling of the case options from one vendor. Too many designs to choose from! Most shops had over a hundred designs. When you buy one, the seller ‘assembles’ your disk on the spot. The price was 40 RMB ($7) for 8 gig. We actually checked the disk and it was indeed 8 gig.
