Kingston Wi-Drive mobile wireless storage device for iOS devices launches in India

Kingston has launched the Wi-Drive in the Indian market, assigning Fortune Marketing, as the distributor for the product. The Kingston Wi-Drive is a mobile wireless storage device, similar to the Seagate GoFlex Satellite we saw earlier this week, except that its easy sharing application, the Wi-Drive app, is available only for iOS devices – and such, it is only meant for these devices.


The Kingston Wi-Drive will be available in 16GB and 32GB capacities, with MSRPs of Rs. 9,900 and Rs. 11,900 respectively, with one-year warranty and 24/7 tech-support. It features a rechargeable battery that is rated to deliver up to 4 hours of continuous use. The device enables up to three iOS devices to access its data simultaneously, and access is over the Wi-Fi 802.11 g/n protocol (with WPA and WEP encryption), along with a password.

Apart from wireless transfer of files, users can also use the miniUSB to USB cable bundled with the device. Operating systems supported for data transfer are Windows 7/Vista (SP1, SP2) /XP (SP3), Mac OS v.10.5.x, and Linux v.2.6.x. As for iOS devices, the Wi-Drive app is downloadable for free from the Apple App Store, and is compatible with iPod touch Gen 3 and 4, iPhone (3G, 3GS, and 4) and the iPad 1 and 2.


Nidhi Sethi – Sales Director for Kingston India, spoke about the usefulness of the Wi-Drive:

“Wi-Drive is an ideal solution for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users who feel confined by their current storage capacity. With a perfect blend of functionality and durability, I believe the product will be well received by both casual users as well as informed tech enthusiasts.”
