Kingston Digital announced at Computex a new M.2 2280 SATA SSD and the MobileLite Wireless G2. Shipping next week, the new 22mm x 80mm SSD has been designed to fit into Ultrabooks, smaller design embedded systems, ultra-thin computing devices and motherboards that support the recently released Intel Z97 chipset.
The M.2 2280 SATA SSD features garbage collection, wear leveling and TRIM support. SATA DevSleep allows efficient power management and minimal power consumption while also allowing devices to stay on and connected without necessarily reducing battery life. M.2 2280 SSD also features firmware-based power-loss protection to maintain data integrity in case of unexpected power loss.
M.2 2280 SATA SSD ships initially in the 120GB capacity with 240GB and 480GB to follow in Q3. It is backed by a three-year warranty.
Kingston Digital's MobileLite Wireless G2 is shipping later this month. It allows smartphone and tablet users to extend onboard device storage and stream and share content with multiple users.
Additionally, the ultra-portable MobileLite Wireless G2 has a 4640 mAh 3.8v battery for mobile charging and a direct Ethernet port for wireless Internet routing, Wi-Fi bridging. The USB port also allows 3G dongle support.
Fully charged, the internal battery of the MobileLite Wireless G2 is capable of charging most smartphones twice. To enable users to stay constantly connected, the device supports a direct connection from a 3G wireless Internet dongle and also has a direct Ethernet connection thus allowing MobileLite Wireless G2 to serve both as a portable router or shared network (NAS) drive.
MobileLite Wireless G2 is backed by a two-year warranty.
