Kingston Digital Releases Second Generation MobileLite Wireless Media Streamer

COMPUTEX TAIPEI, Kelti International Building 14F Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the MobileLite Wireless G2. Shipping later this month, MobileLite Wireless G2 allows smartphone and tablet users to extend onboard device storage and stream and share content with multiple users. Additionally, the ultra-portable MobileLite Wireless G2 has a 4640 mAh 3.8v battery for mobile charging and a direct Ethernet port for wireless Internet routing, Wi-Fi bridging. The USB port also allows 3G dongle support.

Kingston’s new MobileLite Wireless G2 is the best solution for more mobile device storage capacity. Instead of deleting files from a smartphone or tablet to create room, users can wirelessly transfer photos, movies or music to a USB drive or Flash card. It’s perfect for entertainment or travel as pictures, videos, songs or documents can be shared and streamed with multiple users. In addition, photos and videos can be sent directly to the social media platform of choice without the need to connect to a PC.

On-the-go users will love the MobileLite Wireless G2 for its device charging and Ethernet-ready features. Fully charged, the internal battery of the MobileLite Wireless G2 is capable of charging most smartphones twice1. To enable users to stay constantly connected, the device supports a direct connection from a 3G wireless Internet dongle and also has a direct Ethernet connection thus allowing MobileLite Wireless G2 to serve both as a portable router or shared network (NAS) drive.

“MobileLite Wireless G2 is a great device to share pictures, movies, songs or files wirelessly with friends and family,” said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston®. “We have increased the battery life to up to 13 hours of continuous use so it works perfectly to keep your smartphone or tablet charged, or keep your children entertained on long trips.”

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
