Article Publish Date:
Portable hard disk drives and USB flash drives have without doubt helped most of us overcome certain limitations which we wouldn't be able to otherwise. Of course up until a few months ago there wasn't really a way for one to access the contents of a USB flash drive or an external HDD without plugging it into a computer and furthermore there was no way for you to access the contents of an external drive from your cellular phone. Kingston came up with a somewhat easy yet very effective way to solve the above issues with their latest Wi-Drive Portable Wireless Storage device.

Many of you know that i am not much of an Apple fan and so i was quite surprised to see that the latest Kingston Wi-Drive was designed almost entirely with Apple users in mind. Certainly i can understand this since the inability to expand the storage capacity of any Apple product required an solution even if that's not something provided by Apple themselves and let’s face it, with almost 400.000 applications currently available on the Apple AppStore alone even the largest 64GB product versions will simply not suffice in the long run (i won't even go into the music/video segment). So Kingston has come up with a solution for that offered in two flavors, 16GB and 32GB (64GB may be available in the near future) and so today we will be taking a look at the 16GB variant of their latest Wi-Drive.
