For times when it is impractical to access a computer or on-board storage is limited, the portable device effectively creates its own Wi-Fi network enabling users to wirelessly stream or archive media files securely and quickly between an iPad, iPhones, iPod Touch and Android based device. For example, Verbatim’s MediaShare Wireless could help keep children entertained on long journeys by streaming media content chosen by parents through to the child’s tablet, smartphone or portable media player.

Benefiting from an SD memory slot and a built-in USB port rather than on-board storage capacity, MediaShare Wireless makes it possible for users to 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. As data storage units are heavily distributed across Australian and New Zealand households these days, the MediaShare comes without built-in storage capacity. For the manufacturer price of adding just 16GB of storage to the market’s top selling tablet, you could buy at least six 16GB SD cards or USB Drives or a 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.

MediaShare Wireless weighs just 127g and measures 112mm x 79mm x 14mm (L x W x H), roughly the same size as a smartphone making it convenient to carry. It uses a rechargeable 3000mAh Lithium-ion battery that delivers up to 9 hours of continuous movie streaming*. A Micro USB cable is included with the product to allow charging and data transfer.

With an RRP of AU$89.95, Verbatim’s MediaShare Wireless is available now to buy in Australia and New Zealand.
