D-Link is now shipping the SharePort (http://www.dlink.com/shareport/), which offers instant USB sharing capabilities with the free D-Link SharePort Mobile app, enabling users to share videos, music, and photos from an external hard drive or thumb drive to any iPad, iPhone or Android device.
In addition, SharePort provides wireless access wherever an existing network is available and adds instant storage to a mobile device, says Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of marketing, D-Link North America. Smaller than a standard mouse, it offers instant Wi-Fi coupled with a range of features designed for today’s mobile professional.
The SharePort Cloud app for both iOS and Android offers access to videos, music, photos, and files on iOS and Android mobile devices. Simply plug SharePort into an outlet, wait for the red light to turn green and insert a thumb drive to join a network or access media via the SharePort app. SharePort also features a USB port for sharing content from a USB storage device or charging smartphones, as well as an Ethernet port that enables users to easily connect to an existing network in a conference room or hotel room.
The SharePort (DIR-505) is available now for US$69.99 throughout D-Link’s network of U.S. e-tail and retail outlets, including Amazon.com, Office Depot and Office Max, and at the company’s online store.
