WD today unveiled My Passport Wireless, an easy to use Wi-Fi enabled storage drive that allows you to save, access and share stored content wirelessly with any smartphone, tablet, computer or other device.
The My Passport Wireless drive is a simple way to connect all computing and mobile devices to content without any wires or Internet connection. Additionally, when you need to transfer large amounts of data, the My Passport Wireless drive provides the option of using a high speed USB 3.0 connection.
The My Passport Wireless drive broadcasts its own wireless network that allows up to eight devices to connect at the same time and access any content stored on the drive. The drive features Wireless N with MIMO technology for enhanced wireless performance as well as streaming of up to four HD videos simultaneously. The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to six hours of continuous streaming and up to 20 hours of standby power.
Available in 500 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB models, the drive users have anywhere, anytime access to their digital content by using WD's WD My Cloud mobile app for iOS or Android mobile devices. The WD My Cloud mobile app connects to a My Passport Wireless drive for product setup, and once setup the mobile app provides navigation, sharing and playback of the drive's content.
In additional to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, the portable wireless storage drive is a great companion for cameras with its integrated SD card slot, that lets you copy your content from the SD card to the My Passport Wireless. Additionally, with integrated FTP, the drive connects to compatible wireless cameras.
The My Passport Wireless drive is currently available for advance order online at the wdstore.com and will be available at select U.S. retailers later in September. MSRP is $129.99 USD for 500 GB, $179.99 USD for 1 TB and $219.99 for 2 TB. The WD My Cloud mobile app currently is available for download for free from the App Store and Google Play.
