Sony Announces Dual USB Drive For Android Devices
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Sony announced a 2-in-1 flash drive, and just in time for holiday season too . This would make a great present to receive or give due to the SA Series device’s special feature, which is providing a normal USB 2.0 connector on one end and a microUSB connector on the other end.
“Consumers want to let a friend see the photo they just took or share a video easily with as few steps as possible,” said Viviano Cantu, director of consumer media marketing, Sony Electronics. “These new drives combine convenience, peace of mind and performance and are perfect for mobile multi-tasking.”
The flash drive will be available starting from January in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB capacities. This new drive would be ideal for moving video, music and pictures off a smartphone and onto a computer’s hard drive. To help with this, Sony will provide a File Manager app on Google Play, allowing users to move, delete, sort and playback files.
“Consumers can also use the drives as additional or temporary storage for their smartphones and tablets, a storage option that’s ideal for enjoying large data files like feature-length movies or personal music libraries,” reads the press release.
The File Manager is said to be compatible with Android 4.0.3 to 4.3 Jelly Bean only. Supporting operating systems include Windows 7 and Windows 8, Windows Vista, Mac OS 10.4 or later, and the same Android builds as previously mentioned. A locking cap protects the connectors from dust, debris and damage, and the devices’ metal body is durable enough to withstand everyday mobile use.
