Sony announced its latest consumer product, the Portable Wireless Server (PWS) that allows up to eight users to wirelessly view, share and store content from their smartphones wherever they are, while doubling up as a battery charger, card reader/writer and an additional storage device for photos, videos, music files and office documents.
With a wireless connection, users can transfer content to and from their smartphones via the PWS, and serves as an especially convenient option for consumers using smartphones that don’t have a memory card slot.
The PWS is able to connect several devices via Wi-Fi at one time, allowing up to eight users to simultaneously share and playback same (or different) content.
The PWS also functions as a back-up power source for smartphones or digital cameras.
You can use the PWS for up to 10 hours of continuous MP3 playback.
All controls are managed by the smartphone or tablet through the “PWS Manager” App (available at Google Play or App Store).
