SanDisk releases 64GB Connect wireless flash drive
Storage specialist expands product line amid escalating mobile data consumption rates
Flash storage solutions firm SanDisk Corp today announced its 64GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive.
The SanDisk Connect product line allows the wireless streaming and storage of data without Internet access and is aimed at supplementing storage capacities in mobile devices. Data collected from the SanDisk Memory Zone memory management app for Android devices – which SanDisk said has recently surpassed 1.5m downloads – indicates 44% of users have less than half of their mobile device’s internal storage capacity free, and nearly one quarter of users are at more than 80%.
According to SanDisk, the data also shows that when memory utilisation reaches 80 to 90%, users proactively make space available by deleting or removing content.
“We are addressing a common problem of consumers running out of memory on mobile devices, and are extending our Connect product line with a 64GB Wireless Flash Drive for access to even more videos, photos, music, and documents on the go,” said Tareq Husseini, regional sales director, SanDisk Mediterranean Middle East and Africa.
