Sony has this week unveiled a new device they have created in the form of the Sony WG-C20 Portable Wireless Server which has been created to provide an easy back-up and storage solution for mobile devices and tablets.
The Sony WG-C20 provides secure content sharing on the move, and allows an SD card to be inserted to wirelessly play and share content instantly with other devices. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Other features of the Sony WG-C20 Portable Wireless Server include NFC for easy one-touch wireless connection with your phone, the ability to play content on DLNA-enabled TVs or home audio devices and also the ability to charge your smartphone or tablet using its internal battery when required.
“The WG-C20 makes a handy tool for sharing content wirelessly with friends, family and co-workers when there’s no Wi-Fi hotspot nearby. Insert an SD memory card or connect a USB drive containing photos, PC documents or slide presentations.
Then stream and share your files with up to eight users via their smartphones, tablets or PCs. It’s great for meetings, car journeys or impromptu get-togethers when others want to view your digital stuff. It’s secure, too: Access control only lets friends or co-workers see and access a shared folder that you specify. For extra security you can also set a password allowing other devices to access content on the WG-C20.”
The Sony WG-C20 Portable Wireless Server allows up to 8 other wireless users to connect simultaneously, with easy, secure access control and will be available in white, black and purple in Europe from November 2013. However no prices have been announced as yet by Sony.
