Now this product actually looks rather neat, too bad it seems to only be for iOS devices. The gadget is the DW09 and it’s a card reader and USB hub that let’s you wirelessly transfer data to your iPhone or iPad and it even works with Apple TV. The price is $79.99 and its out now.
Apotop, a provider of memory, storage, and mobile products and accessories, is pleased to announce the DW09 Wi-Reader wireless reader / router is now available in the US and Canada. The DW09 enables wireless sharing and 2-way transfer of videos, pictures and other data between iPad / iPhone and SD memory cards / USB Flash drives.
With the palm sized DW09, up to three people with iOS devices can access and share information and stream high-definition movies simultaneously, anytime and anywhere. This is especially convenient since iPad and iPhone do not support USB and SD card interfaces. Additionally, these iPhone and iPad users can watch movies in their preferred video player in file formats that iOS natively doesn’t support.
Hours of movies and music is ready to be shared, thanks to DW09′s support for USB interface drives such as Flash drives and self-powered external hard drives up to 3TB as well as SDXC cards up to 128GB in FAT32, NTFS and exFAT formats. And with the accompanying free Wi-Reader app, users can easily navigate through the shared files on their iPad and iPhone.
The DW09 even works with Apple TV. Users can play music and videos from SD cards on their TVs when using the DW09 as a wi-fi router with Apple TV.
Apotop’s DW09 also doubles as a travel size Wi-Fi hotspot, with its support for 802.11 b/g/n wireless networking. When in a hotel or any other location without Wi-Fi, just plug the LAN line into the DW09 to access the internet comfortably on your notebook or mobile device.
The DW09 Wi-Reader has a continuous wireless sharing time of up to three hours. However when the Wi-Reader does run out of power, the battery can be easily recharged via the USB port.
