Kingston Wi-Drive Review

20120414_230006 Kingston’s Wi-Drive is portable, wireless storage for your mobile devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android devices, Kindle Fire and more. Wi-Drive lets you store and share your favorite content with your favorite people. It gives you up to 32GB of added storage for your mobile device and lets you share photos, videos, music and more with three or more users on their own mobile device. Access Wi-Drive through any Internet browser or download one the free Wi-Drive Apps off the Android or iOS Marketplace. Access to the drive is over the 802.11g/n protocol, just like your typical home
wireless hub, with a password. I can’t stress how simple it is to use, load your content on via the USB cable, then turn the device on with the power button. That’s setup for the Wi-Drive wireless network. Go to your smartphone or tablet, connect to the Wi-Drive network, and the access the content through the Wi-Drive app. It really is that easy with pricing starting at $48 for the 16GB model. You really can’t go wrong with a device that gives you access on 3 devices simultaneously. Only complaint would be the lack of larger sized models (64GB). Definitely a worthy purchase.
