The Sandisk Cruzer Blade is supposedly the smallest USB drive out there today, at least in north America anyway.  I don’t see any actual specs in the pres release as to the actual size, just that it’s the size of the paperclip. paperclips though are varying sizes, and I’ve seen small USB drive like my Super Talent Pico drive.. So until i get my hands on one or get some actual dimensions I’m not saying anything else..

-SanDisk Corporation the global leader in flash memory cards, today announced the availability of its smallest USB flash drive to U.S. and Canadian consumers. The SanDisk Cruzer® Blade is about the size of a standard size paper clip and weighs approximately the same as a penny, creating a tiny footprint that fits easily on a keychain or mobile phone dongle. Despite its small size, the drive packs high-capacity storage at an affordable price.

“The drive lets users transfer their digital data quickly between computers, and delivers a storage boost to devices such as netbooks that often need additional memory but are difficult to upgrade easily.”
