In this day and age, phones aren’t for calling and texting any more. That era is long gone. Now we’re shooting 2K (sometimes even 4K) videos, 20MP stills, downloading apps and such. It all takes up storage. And storage can be a challenge for mobile devices especially ones without expandable storage. Here’s SanDisk to the rescue – with its upgraded line-up of Mobile Memory Solutions (MMS).
The IDC estimated that in 2015, consumers would capture 1.6 trillion digital images, and what’s intriguing is that 70% was via a mobile device. With this rising trend, SanDisk has stepped up to meet today’s demands for more mobile storage.
SanDisk rolled out the improved SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive, 200GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick, SanDisk Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-II card, SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 128GB and SanDisk Ultra USB Type-C Flash Drive.
iXpand Flash Drive for iPhone and iPad
Apple’s iPhone and iPad are the epitome of simplicity. That’s why they don’t come with expandable storage. This is where the iXpand Flash Drive comes in, designed to give you up to 128GB of additional capacity. It comes in a new, pocket-sized design, featuring a flexible Lightning connector and USB 3.0 connector. You can automatically back up your camera roll and contacts or even watch video straight from the drive.
The iXpand includes encryption software to keep your files secure across devices.
With the complementary iXpand Drive app, it gives you added convenience of accessing and managing your files, as well as backing up. The app is available for free download on the App Store.
200GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick
The award-winning SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick now comes in a whopping 200GB capacity. The big capacity stick was recognized by CEA at CES 2016 as “Innovation Honoree” in the wireless handset accessories category.
The SanDisk Connect app that comes with the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick lets you effortlessly manage your content between devices. Be it iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Fire tablets, Macs or PCs, share them easily and securely via password-protected Wi-Fi connectivity.
The app also supports sharing of content via AirPlay to Apple TV; and Google Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV; even 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Live Photos can also be saved on the stick.
SanDisk Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-11 card – fastest in the world
