Kingston's Wi-Drive 'expands' Apple's mobile device's memory


Kingston introduced its first flash-based external drive, the Wi-Drive. The Wi-Drive is mainly intended for Apple's iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and other mobile devices which offers only limited memory and which has no expansion slot and also for those who are worried about the storage.The Wi-Drive acts like an 802.11g/n wireless file server with a configurable access point name and security settings.

In order to start working with this you need to download a free Wi-Drive application from the Apple App Store. It can also be connected to other personal computers with its USB connector. After the installation you can access any video, audio, or image files that your iOS device would support which includes H.264 video, MPEG-4, Motion-JPEG, AAC, MP3, Audible, Apple Lossless, A IFF, WAV, Microsoft Office, iWork, PDF, and JPG, BMP, and PNG images.

The Wi Drive from Kingston can wirelessly access that content via a direct Wi-Fi connection between your device and the driver. It can stream data to and from three users at the same time.

The Wi-Drive will gain support for Android mobile devices later which will allows the addition of more video formats for the drive. While in the case of backup Kingston's does 4 hours of continuous streaming video with its rechargeable battery. The Wi-Drive will be available in late June & comes in 16GB and 32GB configurations for $129.99 and $174.99, respectively.
