Smartphone compatible USB flash drive from Sony announced

It does not only work with smartphones, but also with tablets: Sony’s latest USB flash drive was announced and it features dual micro USB and USB 2.0 connectors. It is compatible with devices running Android version 4.0.3-4.3, but compatibility for Android version 4.4 should also arrive soon. These drives are fully compatible with USB on-the-go (OTG) for which Android devices act like hosts.

Who is it for? Android users that want to back-up, store, or share files in an easy, convenient way, without relying on data connection or WiFi access. “Consumers want to let a friend see the photo they just took or share a video easily with as few steps as possible. These new drives combine convenience, peace of mind and performance and are perfect for mobile multi-tasking”, said Viviano Cantu, director of consumer media marketing, Sony Electronics.

Of course, there’s always the good old fashioned WiFi/Bluetooth/upload/email/etc. way of sharing content, but it’s good to have an alternative for those cases when you want to share a lot of information or you want to be gentle on your data.

8-, 16-, and 32GB storage options are available — and can also be used as an internal storage expansion — as well as three different cap colors. These drives will be available starting January 2014 and will set you back $19.99, $29.99, or $62.99, for the three storage capacities.
