July 22, 2011, Calgary, Canada – HSTi launched Mobostick™, Android™ world’s answer to Airplay™. A unique Android™ streaming Accessory”, Mobostick™ turns Android™ Smartphones and Tablets to wireless, secure, portable, media and file sharing devices.
Mobostick™, wirelessly shares files from an Android™ Smartphone and Tablet to any device with a USB port. With the addition of the Mobostick™ (http://www.mobostick.com) Android™ devices users can turn them into portable wireless media and file servers. They can copy files to a computer or laptop, backup important information, stream music files to a stereo, beam videos or photos downloaded or created by the Smartphone or Tablet to a TV, display a photo slideshow through a game console or any media player, print a photo at a USB equipped printer. All can be done at home, at the office, in the car, at a friend’s place or at the local café. Wirelessly!
Android™ Tablet users who create documents, now have a portable sharing solution in the Mobostick™ which does not depend on cords or drivers, nor is dependent on manufacturer-specific proprietary environments.
Mobostick™ is a self-contained solution, manufacturer-independent, sharing any file, anywhere! All that is required is one of the billions of playback devices equipped with a USB port.
Based on customer feedback, an accessory as portable as the Mobostick™ for a Smartphone and Tablet emerged as a preferred solution by many of HSTI’s customers. Mobostick™ provides connectivity for most manufacturers’ Android™ Smartphones and Tablets and with an added advantage: Anywhere, on the go and in manufacturer-agnostic environments! Be it Motorola or HTC, Sony, Asus, Acer, Samsung and many more brands, the Mobostick™ offers the wireless connectivity many Android™ users were looking for.
Mobostick™ is utilizing the Android™ device’s built-in Access Point / Hotspot to connect the device, while the free Mobostick™ App (available on the Android™ Market) governs the file sharing. Files are shared wirelessly through the Mobostick™ and with any device it plugs into, in the background, while allowing the user to simultaneously use the Smartphone or Tablet in any of its other functions, without any interruption. Files are not copied or moved from the device and it is totally secure.
The award winning proprietary technology of HSTi gained acceptance at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas as a unique media server for Android™ Tablets and Smartphones. The ever-expanding Android™ Smartphone and Tablet markets needed an Accessory like the Mobostick™. It proved compatible with virtually any playback device with a USB port, like a TV, PS3™, Xbox™, DVD/Blu-ray™ player, WD TV™, O!Play, Google TV™, stereo and even a photo frame.
“Android™ devices are dominating the mobility market today. Smartphones and Tablets do a great job consolidating one’s life into one device, but when it comes to sharing media or work files from an Android™ device, options are limited,” said Ramesh Uppal, HSTi’s President and CEO. “The Mobostick™ combined with an Android™ Smartphone or Tablet makes it easy for people to share their creations, with friends, family, colleagues, whoever. Plenty of Apps on the Android™ platform offer DLNA / UPNP compatibility between a phone or tablet and a media player. These Apps depend on technologies like home networks and wireless enabled media players to work. How portable is a solution that depends on hardware you just left back in your home? How practical is it to take your TV and router wherever you go? Mobostick™ is the perfect accessory for your Android™ devices and provides the portability desired”, he emphasized.
The Mobostick™ is expected to be on major Retailers and e-tailers shelves shortly, just in time for the “Back to School” period and is readily available from HSTi’s web-site at http://hsti.com/shop
