Verbatim has introduced the MediaShare Wireless, a portable device which connects up to five Wi-Fi enabled tablets and smartphones, allowing you to view, play, stream, and back up photos, videos, and music simultaneously.
The portable device creates its own Wi-Fi network enabling users to wirelessly stream or archive media files securely between an iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android device. This is extremely useful especially to help keep children entertainment on long journeys by streaming media content chosen by their parents through to the child's tablet, smartphone, or portable media player.
The MediaShare Wireless lets users add unlimited data capacity in a far more affordable manner to an ad-hoc network of tablets and smartphones via SD cards, micro SD cards with an adaptor, USB drives, and external hard drives. By adding just 16GB of storage to a tablet, you could buy at least six 16GB SD cards or USB drives or 1TB portable hard drive in comparison.
An easy-to-use MediaShare Wireless app, available to download from iTunes and Google Play for iOS and Android devices respectively, lets users manage content (copying files between devices and MediaShare Wireless). It also provides a bridge to other wireless LAN networks to allow internet connections while files are being streamed. Weighing just 127g with the approximate size of a smartphone, it uses a rechargeable 3,000mAh Li-ion battery that delivers up to 9 hours of continuous movie streaming.
Priced at EUR$49.99, the Verbatim MediaShare Wireless comes bundled with a Micro USB cable so you can charge and transfer data.
