Wi-Drive to address the storage needs of Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users
Kingston Digital, a flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology company, has launched Wi-Drive, to address the storage needs of Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users.
The new wireless, portable storage offering Wi-Drive allows users to expand the number of documents, images, music and video files they can access from Apple devices.
In addition, Wi-Drive, along with its apps from the App Store, allows users to stream videos, access music or share files with other Apple device owners.
The storage offering is designed to utilise flash-based technology to store data from USB-compatible PCs. These files are then retrieved via Wi-Drive’s built-in wireless signal without requiring cables or an Internet connection, the company said.
The company added that the new offering allows three users to work simultaneously with different file types from a single Wi-Drive without any performance disruption.
Kingston business manager Andrew Ewing said Wi-Drive is an ideal offering for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users who feel confined by their current storage capacity.
"Wi-Drive allows Apple device owners to wirelessly manage document and media files, and choose to share them with others, while on the go for work or pleasure," Ewing said.
"This unique functionality, combined with the durability of a Flash-based device, will satisfy both casual users and the most discerning technophiles."
The Wi-Drive comes in both 16GB and 32GB sizes. It is expected to available for purchase late this month.
