Kingston Digital Europe, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced an update enabling browser support for Wi-Drive. The update allows multiplatform wireless streaming of data to any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device via a Web browser.

With integrated Wi-Fi and four hours of battery life, Kingston Wi-Drive offers great pocket-sized portable storage and easy file sharing for any Wi-Fi device including  Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android devices, Kindle Fire and more.

 In addition, Wi-Drive is now available in capacities of up to 64GB. The new 64GB version allows even more sharing and further expands the capacity of every Wi-Fi enabled device. The new, larger addition joins the existing 32GB Wi-Drive. Kingston also offers optimised Apps for Wi-Drive providing additional features for users. Wi-Drive App1 for Android OS devices is now available on Google Play App store. Due to the variety of Android-based devices, Wi-Drive offers the most versatile experience for users so they can choose between the Web browser and App to access and share their media. 

Minor enhancements and fixes have also been made to the Apps for Kindle Fire and Apple devices. Current users of these Wi-Drive Apps will automatically receive notice of these updates while all-new downloads of the Apps will be to the new version.
