Kingston To Ship Wireless Drive For Apple Devices

6/03/2011 12:13:00 PM Eastern

Fountain Valley, Calif. - Kingston Digital introduced its Wi-Drive, a Wi-Fi flash-based storage device designed to expand the memory of iPad, iPhone and iPad Touch devices.

The Wi-Drive transfers content between a PC and any of the compatible Apple products by dragging and dropping files from the PC to the drive via USB cable, as with any USB flash drive data transfer. Users then connect the drive to the Apple device and using the free Wi-Drive app, available in Apple's App Store, syncs the drive to the device.

The drive can sync to two devices at once, so two users with the app can access different content simultaneously.

"Wi-Drive is an ideal solution for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users who feel confined by their current storage capacity," said Andrew Ewing, Kingston's flash memory business manager. "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."

The Wi-Drive comes in two capacities, 16GB and 32GB, each sporting a small 4.75 by 2.4 by 0.4-inch form factor.

The drive's rechargeable battery allows four hours of continuous use per charge. It ships with a mini USB-to-USB cable.

The 16GB Wi-Drive retails for $129.99 and the 32GB model for $174.99. They will be available in late June.
