SanDisk has launched a USB flash drive featuring both a micro USB and a USB 2.0 connector trhat has been designed for Android users who need a way to move content from their mobile devices.
"The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive provides a simple, convenient way to offload and backup files from smartphones and tablets - with the peace of mind that comes with the trusted SanDisk brand," said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk. "This new drive integrates with SanDisk's Memory Zone app to make freeing up space on mobile devices simpler than ever, improving the user experience."
The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive provides a way to transfer content via an Android-powered smartphone or tablet's micro-USB port and a computer's USB connection. While other methods of transferring files from a mobile device to a computer require wires, applications or a wireless set-up, the SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive simply needs to be connected to a mobile device supporting USB on-the-go (OTG)1 to access up to 64GB2 of 'plug and play' storage capacity. Additionally, the drive's dual USB ports feature a retractable cover, meaning no caps to lose while still keeping the connectors safe.
SanDisk is making content management even easier with the SanDisk Memory Zone app, available for download on Google Play. With the SanDisk Memory Zone app, users are able to better organize files stored on internal and external phone memory for management, viewing, copying and backup - further easing the hassle of freeing up the memory on their mobile device.
