With Battery Charging Capability, it’s Ideal Companion for Mobile Device Users, Photo Enthusiasts, Family and Business Travelers

 LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 (CES Booth #14200) Sony’s new Portable Wireless Server gives consumers new options for storing and sharing content at home or on the road from mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs.  The versatile device also serves as a battery charger, card reader/writer and additional storage, giving users added control when managing data such as photos, videos, music files and office documents.

The Portable Wireless Server (PWS) connects several devices via Wi-Fi at one time, allowing up to eight users to simultaneously share and playback different content on their smartphone, tablet or PC.

“We’ve all experienced these scenarios: my smartphone’s memory is full, I can’t upload photos to Facebook from my camera, I lost my phone and all my data, or my smartphone is out of power,” said Viviano Cantu, director of consumer media marketing at Sony Electronics. “With this wireless server, users have easy access to their data and added peace of mind. It’s an ideal companion for photo enthusiasts, business travelers and families on vacation.”

With a wireless connection, users can transfer content to and from smartphones, tablets or PCs.  The PWS also lets users easily expand the storage capacity of their mobile device by using a memory card.

The PWS functions as a back-up power source for smartphones or digital cameras. Consumers can use the PWS for up to 10 hours of continuous operation possible. It also becomes a Wi-Fi memory card reader/writer, a convenient option for smartphones or tablets that don’t have a memory card slot. All controls are managed by the smartphone or tablet through the “PWS Manager” App (available for download through Google Play or the iTunes App Store).

The Portable Wireless Server, model WG-C10, is planned to be available in May 2013, at a suggested retail price of $89.99. For more information please visit http://www.sony.net/Products/ws/en_us/pwsintro/index.html.
