me personally… why not just get a basic USB key and use TrueCrypt (www.truecrypt.org) on it?

Perhaps a replacement for their unsecure “secure devices”:

Apart from that (I am still thinking of corporate/government application), TrueCryt needs either be installed on all computers the device shall be used on. TC’s “Traveller Mode” needs admin permissions, which is a no-go in corp/gov environment. Not sure if this has changed in the meantime.
