SanDisk’s

new range of Connect products, announced today, will allow users to

wirelessly store and transfer files across mobile devices and computers.

Two

products currently feature in the range, both of which are compatible

with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Kindle Fire and Android devices as well

as PC and Mac computers.

The

SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive, with dimensions of 77.96 x 26.64 x

13.76 mm, is the smallest wireless USB storage device available to

date, the firm claims.

Users

can access up to 32GB of content wirelessly from other devices, and

stream for up to four hours on a single battery charge.

Also

available is the Sandisk Connect Wireless Media Drive (above), a pocket-sized

device with up to 64GB of storage that allows for HD streaming.

The

product features an SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, and can connect to up

to eight mobile devices to stream up to five different HD movies at

once, if so desired. With eight hours of streaming possible on one

charge, it’s an impressive piece of kit.

SanDisk

has been in the business of wireless storage for some time, and has

come out with some good products. Last year our own Mike Topham was

impressed with the SanDisk Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card, calling it ‘an

excellent solution for transferring your images and videos wirelessly to

your computer, smartphone or tablet’
.

Dinesh

Bahal, vice president of product marketing at SanDisk, says that with

these products the firm is ‘raising the bar on what consumers can expect

from personal storage’.

The

Sandisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive is available in 16 and 32GB

capacities, priced at £41.90 and £49.90. We don’t have a price for the

Connect Wireless Media Drive yet, but 32 and 64GB models will be

available later this year. In the meantime, you can find out more about

the products at the SanDisk website.

    There already have such products on the market. They are claimed to be with more functions (power bank, wirless router, etc). Such as RAVPower Filehub and HooToo Tripmate. It seems that SanDisk have to make great efforts to win the competition.
