Thumb drives are one of the most handy devices that we utilize nearly everyday in our computers. But what if you wish to move larger files to your mobile phone or just have small external storage for a mobile device? Here comes Kingston with their new DataTraveler microDuo series which is not only equipped with micro USB connector but also supports USB On-The-Go functionality.
Let’s start with couple of words from Kingston about their new flash drive:
Expanded storage for tablets and smartphones.
Kingston’s DataTraveler® microDuo provides additional storage in a small, convenient form factor for tablets and smartphones that support the USB OTG (On-The-Go) functionality. The USB OTG standard allows mobile devices to directly connect to supported USB devices.
DataTraveler microDuo allows microUSB ports, often used for charging devices, to be used as expansion ports for up to 32GB of additional memory. Ideal for storing large files while traveling, DTDUO gives plug-and-play functionality to tablets and smartphones without microSD ports at a lower price per GB than the extra built-in storage on a mobile device.With smartphones and tablets recording HD video and taking higher resolution photos, space on these devices gets used up faster than ever. DTDUO lets users move files, photos, videos and more — without plugging into a PC — to offload or backup content. Sharing large files between mobile devices is easier than using online cloud services, and there’s no need for a cable to transfer data between the device and a PC.DT microDuo is small, lightweight and easy to take anywhere, plus its sleek design complements any mobile device. Its rotating cap protects the microUSB connector from damage.
DataTraveler microDuo is backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston® reliability
