Life ‘on-the-go' becomes simpler for Android users

Bordeaux - 9 June 2014 - PNY Technologies, a leading manufacturer and supplier of upgrade, graphics and storage solutions, announces the launch of its On-The-Go (OTG) USB Robot adapter. Through its micro-USB connector and USB 2.0 port, the OTG Robot Adapter transfers and streams content between Android mobile devices and USB drives.

A major benefit for smartphone and tablet users is the ability to free the internal storage capacity of their device, where space is often at a premium, safe in the knowledge that this pocket-sized adapter offers quick and simple access to any files stored on a USB drive.

This highly practical accessory is compatible with devices running on Android 4.0 or later and has multiple functions for use on the move:

Ø  Transfer files from a USB drive to an Android smartphone or tablet, or vice versa

Users can share and enjoy memorable photos and their favourite music anytime, anywhere.  

Ø  Stream video content from a USB drive on an Android smartphone or tablet

Videos, often heavy files, can be stored externally on a USB and viewed at the convenience of the user.

The OTG Robot Adapter can also be used to couple an Android smartphone or tablet with a peripheral device such as a mouse or keyboard, which can then be used to control the mobile device.  

Jonathan Filleau, EMEA Product Manager for PNY Consumer products, said:

"The mobile phone is the one device we keep at hand almost 24/7 and the USB key is the most prevalent kind of portable storage device. The OTG Robot Adapter makes the lives of consumers simpler by bringing together these two devices, which in the past could only be used separately and connected via the medium of a computer."   

Pricing and availability:

The OTG Robot adapter comes with a one-year guarantee and will be available from mid-June at a recommended retail price of £4.99.
