Android users wanting more storage for their devices get a potential Sony solution-- a 2-in-1 USB flash drive armed with dual micro USB and USB 2.0 connectors designed for smartphone and tablet use.

Sony USB“Consumers want to let a friend see the photo they just took or share a video easily with as few steps as possible,” the company claims. “These new drives combine convenience, peace of mind and performance and are perfect for mobile multi-tasking.”

The drives feature USB On-the-Go (OTG) functionality allowing devices to act as a "host" when connected to other USB peripherals. Other uses include file transfers and as additional storage for larger media libraries.

A cap protects connectors from damage, and metal construction should withstand the thumps and bumps of everyday use.

Sony also offers a free File Manager app for easier smartphone operation complete with file search, copy, delete, playback and sort features.

The flash drives will be available from January 2014 in 8, 16 and 32GB capacities and 3 different cap colours.
