Kingston Expands Device Support for Wi-Drive

Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced an update enabling browser support for Wi-Drive. The update allows multiplatform wireless streaming of data to any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device via a Web browser. The feature will be included in future shipments and all current owners of Wi-Drive can update their own device.

This expansion of device support allows a mixture of users’ preferred mobile devices to simultaneously access and share content on the Wi-Drive. With integrated Wi-Fi and four hours of battery life, Kingston Wi-Drive offers great pocket-sized portable storage (up to 64GB) and easy file sharing for any Wi-Fi device including Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android devices, Kindle Fire and more.

In addition to access via browser, Kingston also offers optimized apps for the Wi-Drive providing additional features for users. Wi-Drive App1 for Android OS devices is now available. Due to the variety of Android-based devices, Wi-Drive offers the most versatile experience for users so they can choose between the Web browser and App to access and share their media.

Minor enhancements and fixes have also been made to the apps for Kindle Fire and Apple devices. Current users of these Wi-Drive apps will automatically receive notice of these updates while all new downloads of the apps will be to the new version. The free Wi-Drive Android App is available on Google Play. It is also available for Kindle Fire on the Amazon Appstore for Android, and for Apple devices in the App Store.

Yeah, I’m thinking of getting one now myself. The Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB model goes for about ~$49.99 now whereas it was a lot more when it was first released. With this update more devices are supported which is really great IMO.

I was just thinking I need more storage on my iPad, something like this would really help.
