SanDisk today announced its new generation Connect Wireless Stick. About the size of a USB flash drive, the drive enables easy sharing and transferring of photos, videos, and other data between mobile devices and your PC.
The primary selling point is wireless connectivity. We're all used to plugging USB flash drives into our PCs to move files about, but when it comes to a growing reliance on mobile devices, not all gadgets have full-size USB ports. This is where SanDisk's stick comes into play.
Armed with its own wireless network, any Wi-Fi enabled device can tap into the Connect Wireless Stick, which you can store in your pocket, briefcase, or wherever is most convenient.
The Connect Wireless Stick supports up to five simultaneous connections, and three can stream at a time. It also has a built-in battery that can support a single stream for up to 4.5 hours on a single charge. Should it run out of juice, you can plug the stick into a USB port and transfer files just like a USB thumb drive.
SanDisk has a free Connect app that facilitates media playback and other functions. It's available for Android, iOS, and Amazon Fire devices.
The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacity options. Prices range from $30 to $100 MSRP.
