Pre-order to start from Sep. 1st to 24th on special page on Amazon.co.jp

New Wi-Drive Stylishly Delivers Wireless, Portable and Shareable Storage

Kingston, the global No. 1 independent memory module manufacturer and global leading storage devise brand, today announced the sleek and functional Wi-Drive, built to address the ever-increasing storage needs of Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users www.kingston.com/[ktc:country.FndCountry]/usb/wireless#wid. Japanese consumers will be able to purchase Kingston Wi-Drive on Amazon.jp exclusively from September 30th, and also the pre-order will start from September 1st to September 30th on http://www.amazon.co.jp/wi-drive, available in both 16GB and 32GB capacities.

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. The combination of this storage expansion, file sharing and a rugged portable form factor makes it a perfect companion device.

Along with its app from the App Store, Wi-Drive allows users to stream videos, access music or share files with other Apple device owners. The distinctively designed, pocket-sized Wi-Drive utilizes Flash-based technology to store data from USB-compatible PCs. 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.

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. A video with a demonstration of the solution is also available here: www.kingston.com/[ktc:country.FndCountry]/usb/wireless#wid.

"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."
