SanDisk unveils new wireless flash drive for PCs and mobile devices

In the increasingly mobile world, it is very hard to find a storage device that is compatible with all gadgets that are in use, is not expensive, is easy to carry and to use. SanDisk has managed to create one: the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick can store up to 128GB of data and can be used with Apple, Amazon, Google Android and Windows devices.

The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick flash drive uses 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi technology to connect to smartphones, tablets and personal computers, which means that it is compatible with all types of modern mobile devices from major producers. The family of SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick drives can store 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of data. The wireless pen drives feature integrated battery (which can be charged by simply plugging the device into any USB port) and can operate for up to 4.5 hours.

The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is supported by special apps for Apple iOS, Google Android and Amazon Fire-based devices. The drives can connect to Apple Macintosh or Microsoft Windows personal computers via password-protected Wi-Fi connectivity or via a USB port.

The specially designed apps allow users of mobile devices to upload, download, save, share and play all types of content (music, video, photos, etc.) from a distance, to and from any supported device. Improved performance of the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick allows to stream HD movies and music to up to three devices at the same time.

“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,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president of product marketing at SanDisk.

KitGuru Says: SanDisk has just updated its product, which has largely remained unique throughout its life cycle. It is unknown whether the new one is considerably better than the old one, but it will certainly remain virtually unrivaled.
