Eschborn, Germany, 2014/01/22 - Verbatim, a pioneer of data storage technology, targets Android tablet and smartphone users with a new range of flash memory products. Included adapters help to make file transfers between devices faster and easier without using a computer - Verbatim.com.
Store ‘n’ Go Nano USB Drive with Micro USB Adapter
This smart data storage solution developed by Verbatim combines a USB drive with up to 32GB of memory with a Micro USB Adapter with ‘On The Go (OTG)’ specification. USB OTG allows data storage, mice and keyboards among other compliant peripherals to attach to an Android device through its Micro USB port. For example, users can transfer, stream or copy photos from a digital camera directly to an Android tablet or smartphone. Already a popular device used in car audio devices, game consoles and TVs, the compact (no bigger than a Euro coin) Nano USB Drive can be used as a standard USB drive. The Micro USB adapter packaged with the Nano USB Drive can be used independently whenever required.
Verbatim also introduces its Tablet microSDHC Card that includes an SD card adaptor to provide a simple solution to expanded memory for a compatible Android/Windows 8 tablet or smartphone. The top-of-the-range 32GB microSDHC Card (colour coded red) has a Speed Class 10 and UHS-I Speed Class 1 rating delivering ample capacity and optimised performance for HD video use. Alternatively, customers can opt for a 16GB (blue) or 8GB (green) microSDHC Card. Also with a Speed Class 10 rating, both of these cards have enough capacity to sharing and storing video, music and photo files.
