If there’s one universal truth in life, whether we’re talking about a house or a mobile device, no matter what capacious capacity you choose, you will eventually and inevitably fill it. In either case you have two choices: pare down or upgrade; and neither is that palatable.
Fortunately, while we can’t help you with your pokey house problem, for smartphone and tablet users there’s now a third way that lets you enjoy exponentially expanded capacity on the go, access it both rapidly and wirelessly, share stored data between up to three devices simultaneously, and slip it into your shirt pocket: this is the Kingston Technology Wi-Drive.
Supermodel slim and lighter than a BBC 1 sitcom, the Wi-Drive comes Wi-Fi enabled and Flash-based to make the storage and sharing of documents, music, video, photos and, well, anything else you want, with any smartphone or tablet on pretty much any platform, a simple matter of downloading the free app and linking up.
Once you’ve loaded up your Wi-Drive using drag and drop over USB from any desktop or laptop, you’re free to set about sharing. Working seamlessly with both the LOA test smartphone and tablet alike, the app link-up took mere seconds to establish, whilst accessing and playing the music, video and photo files we’d stashed on it proved to be as easy as opening any other app already on the device.
Essentially a wireless extension of your digital world, the Wi-Drive is available in two capacities, a 32GB model retailing at £100 and a 64GB at £120, but a sale on over at the ‘Lungs of the Shopping World’, Amazon, right now will let you snap them up for £50 and £70 respectively. Head here and never worry about space again… or for a while at least.
Thanks to our friends over at Kingston Technology we now have a 32GB Wi-Drive to give away to one lucky LOA reader. To be in with a chance of getting your hands on one for free, gratis, no-pence, simply email your answer to the following question to us here with ‘Wi-Drive Competition’ in the subject line, by the closing date of Friday November 9th.
Q. With how many devices can the Wi-Drive simultaneously share data?
