Today we are looking at the Kingston Mobilelite Wireless, a portable SD card reader with WiFi capabilities. Zardon reviewed the Kingston Wi-Drive earlier this year and found it to be “a very useful device at a very competitive price point.” Like the Wi-Drive, the Mobilelite Wireless is aimed at Android and Apple users while those with a Windows phone will have to wait for their version of the app needed to use the reader.
The 64GB Kingston Wi-Drive is currently available for as little as £68 inc vat. whereas the 128GB version can be picked up for close to £116 inc vat. So, is the new Mobilelite Wireless worth its £49.98 asking price?
