If you are a smartphone user, you must have seen the most repulsive message — ‘your device is running out of space. Delete some files to make space’ – at least once or twice in a week. Irked, you’d quickly go to the ‘gallery’ to delete some pictures or videos to make space for the new pictures.

The other common challenges that mobile users face are transferring and sharing the data with others and allowing others to access the data on the device directly.

Keeping these challenges in view, the Nasdaq-listed firm SanDisk launched USB drive 3.0, which can be connected to an Android mobile phone and a PC. “This will solve your data transfer problem at once,” said Jaganathan Chelliah, Director (Marketing) of SanDisk India Device Design Centre.

The data transfers happen with the help of an app developed by the firm.

Showcasing a range of products for mobile devices, he said the USB devices are available with memories of 16 GB (₹500), 32 GB (₹900) and 64 GB (₹1,790). The firm launched a similar product for Apple phones as well. As many as 96 per cent of all smartphones in the country come with an internal memory that is less than 16 GB. With the bulk of this capacity is allotted to the Operating System and other important functional applications, the users are left with a little space to store the data they create on the go. “This calls for a solution that addresses this challenge,” he said.

Wireless stick

The firm also launched SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick, a mobile flash drive that works on built-in Wi-Fi. “This creates a small sharing zone, allowing the host to share multiple files to multiple phones, computers and tablets

“The Wireless Stick is compatible with iOS and Android devices. The range gives the flexibility to users to increase their mobile storage up to 200GB,” he said. The firm’s research and development team in Bengaluru played an important role in the development of the two devices. With 600 employees, the centre is one of the three R&D centres the company has in the US and Israel.
