Kingston is a well-known manufacturer of storage device and has recently introduced “DataTraveler microDuo” – a 2-in-1 USB pen drive in India. The USB storage drive is unique and is a must-have external storage if you are using Android smartphones or tablets. With more and more smartphones being introduced with limited internal storage and no expansion slots for memory cards, the Kingston microDuo Ultra Dual drive can come to the rescue. It uses the microUSB port on Android devices – often used for charging – to expand storage up to 64GB.
microDuo: Features and highlights
It is a unique pen drive, about the size of an average ‘Ctrl’ key on a physical keyboard. Though its form is tiny, it has a strong built, champagne gold body and brown plastic cover. The best part is that both sides of the pen drive are equipped with USB ports. While one is a regular USB port for PC use while the other side has a micro USB port for mobile use.
The Kinston microDuo dual interface pen drive is equipped with the OTG feature and eliminates the need for a data cable or USB OTG cable in order to copy data. All you need to do is plug-in the pen drive into your phone’s charging. You can now share your data across OTG-compliant tablets and smartphones, or PCs and laptops to your handheld with great ease. Alternatively, you can carry along your additional data, music, videos or photos on the pen drive and access them when you need it. So, if you are out on a vacation and run of space clicking too many photos, then this Dual USB thumb drive is an interesting option for you.
The Kingston microDuo is a USB 2.0 storage drive and available in four variants – 8GB, 16GB 32GB and 64GB. The 8GB variant is available for Rs 500, 16GB for Rs 1200GB and the 32GB variant for Rs 2200. However, there is a limited period offer running on Flipkart.com for the 16GB and 32GB variant.
