Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB Review

For those in the Android world who want to add extra storage to their device it is as easy as adding a memory card, but for all of us who use iOS devices we are stuck with the capacity of the device we purchase.  With all of the movies, music, photos and apps out there it is easy to reach capacity on iOS devices.  I’m sure many people get frustrated with this and Kingston knows this.  This is why they have come up with the Wi-Drive.  It is portable, wireless storage for your iPod, iPhone or iPad.  Read on as we take a look…
