SanDisk offers new wireless flash drive
USB flash drives are undoubtedly the best way to carry files around – they offer decent capacity, small sizes, high data transfer speeds and good reliability. The only nuisance comes when you have to plug and then unplug these devices after copying files and this ruins the entire picture.
Well, not anymore – the US company SanDisk has announced a new wireless USB flash drive that goes by the brand name of Connect Wireless Stick. The new drive packs Wi-Fi capabilities, a higher 128 GB capacity and a compact design all for a great price.
“We live in an era where we are truly living a mobile lifestyle. We use our devices to capture life’s moments, and work in a way that was never before possible – all of which has created the need for a new generation of mobile storage,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk. “The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is designed to give people a simple, intuitive way to save and access all of the great content they create and consume across multiple devices, without breaking the bank.”
The new USB flash drive is designed to work with tablets, notebooks and smartphones and allows users to wirelessly access media or transfer large files, music and movies from and to mobile devices – up to three at the same time. In addition the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick can support a single stream for up to 4.5 hours on a single charge. The drive also has a USB connector so you can connect it to any device with a USB port and then use it as a regular USB flash drive. Moreover, the Connect Wireless Stick offers a new app, called SanDisk Connect, which enables almost effortless content management between various devices including Android and iOS devices, Macs, PCs and Fire tablets.
