With the kind of technology we have today, the smartphones and tablets we all love comes with more and more features, without sacrificing mobility and portability. They simply allow us to go on quick, impromptu road trips or unexpected meetings without having the need to bring a laptop or a point-and-shoot camera with you every time you head out. But, there will always be a day when you need to quickly transfer files, documents and photos from one device to another, which can sometimes be a hassle.
We here at CebuTechBlogger.com found a simple and handy solution to this, a Smart Dual Drive with USB On the Go support by Team Group, which of course doubles as a Flash drive.
This small, nifty device is just as small as a typical Flash drive with a brushed metallic finish. It comes in with either 16, 32, or 64 GB worth of built in storage which you can connect to your computer, whether a Mac, PC or Linux, thanks to it’s USB 3.0 compatibility. It has a maximum of 85 MB/s reading speed, and a maximum of 20 MB/s of writing speed.
What makes it special is that on the other side, it has a micro USB 2.0 connector which you can stick to a compatible smartphone, for easier file transfer. The smartphone connector module comes with a built in maximum data transmission speed of up to 480 MB/s, which is way faster than Wi-Fi and Bluetooth data transmissions.
Although the Team Group M132 Smart Dual Flashdrive works well with Mac OS computers, sadly, it will not work with any iOS device. But, it does support a whole range of Samsung devices such as the Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3, as well as select Sony, HTC, Asus and Acer Android smartphones and tablets.
And as a bonus, the M132 is waterproof, so you’ll never have to worry about accidentally jumping into a pool with the Smart Dual Flashdrive device in your pocket, thanks to the anti-shock cap cover of the USB module. Of course, there’s also a lanyard eyelet, as well as an earphone plug which you can stick to your smartphone or tablet’s 3.5 mm jack to take it anywhere with you.
