Kingston Digital adds storage capabilities to iPad, iPhone and iPod touch with new WiFi-based storage
Kingston has announced the sleek Wi-Drive will arrive in the Australian and New Zealand market, August 8, 2011 and will be available through Kingston’s channel of authorized distributors, resellers and retailers.

Built to address the ever-increasing storage needs of Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users, Wi-Drive, a wireless, portable storage solution, allows users to expand the number of documents, images, music and video files they can access from Apple devices.

With its built in Wi-Fi access point, Wi-Drive allows users to stream movies, listen to music, and view pictures or documents by utilizing the Wi-Drive App, available for free in the App Store SM. These files are then easily retrieved via Wi-Drive’s built-in wireless signal without requiring cables or an Internet connection. Three users can work simultaneously with different file types from a single Wi-Drive without any performance disruption.

Flash-based memory technology found in Wi-Drive is more durable than traditional platter-based hard drives, and enables faster file accessibility. It is also extremely portable, weighing only 86.18 grams.

“Wi-Drive is an ideal solution for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users who feel confined by their current storage capacity,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “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. This unique functionality, combined with the durability of a Flash-based device, will satisfy both casual users and the most discerning technophiles.”

To begin using Wi-Drive with any of the compatible Apple products, users simply drag and drop files from their PC to Wi-Drive via USB cable, similar to a typical USB Flash drive data transfer. Users then download the Wi-Drive application from the App Store before connecting the Wi-Drive to their device. 

Kingston Wi-Drive will be available in 16GB, 32GB capacities. It measures 121.5mm x 61.8mm x 9.8mm and its rechargeable battery can provide up to four hours of continuous use. The drive supports WiFi 802.11g/n with wireless security (WPA/WEP).

The Wi-Drive 16GB will be available for NZ$199.50 and the 32GB version will retail for NZ$265.00.
