Kingston has announced the Wi-Drive, a portable storage and file-management device for iOS.

The flash memory-based drive is aimed specifically at the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and offers additional storage space and file-management features to owners of iOS devices.

To start off you can transfer files onto the Wi-Drive from your Mac or Windows PC via USB. You'll then need to download the free Wi-Drive app from the App Store and once you have it installed you'll be able to connect your iOS device to the Wi-Drive over Wi-Fi.

It comes with either 16GB or 32GB of storage space and up to three users can then wirelessly access the content stored on the Wi-Drive.

“Wi-Drive allows Apple device owners to wirelessly manage document and media files, and choose to share them with others, while on the go for work or pleasure,” said Krystian Jaroszynski, European Product Marketing Manager at Kingston.

“This unique functionality, combined with the durability of a Flash memory based device, will satisfy both casual users and the most discerning technophiles,” Jaroszynski continued.

The 16GB version is available from Cancom for £89 and the 32GB version costs £119 from the same supplier. It is also available through solutions inc., Square Group, Farpoint, Western Computer, MCC Group, Micro Anvika stores and online at Ebuyer.
