Kingston Wi-Drive boosts your iPhone or iPad storage

Kingston has announced an external storage solution for your iPhone or iPad - the Wi-Drive.

Shaped just like an iPhone, the external flash based drive comes in 16 or 32GB flavours and connects to your PC or Mac just as any other external drive would, for drag and drop action.

But it's when you download the free Wi-Drive app that the device really kicks into gear - for you can then connect up to three iDevices and stream music and video and look at photos and other files within a 10 metre range.

It creates its own Wi-Fi network that you have to connect with - but you'd need to disconnect from your usual Wi-Fi network to access your stored data.

Seagate released something similar earlier this year with the GoFlex Satellite which was has a 500GB HDD, USB 3.0 interface and boasts HD video streaming.

The Kingston Wi-Drive looks like being a more affordable option to the GoFlex though - coming it at £89 or £119 depending on your storage requirements.

It will be available soon from Micro Anvika stores and online at Ebuyer.
