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.
Apple’s Airplay™ and DLNA apps depend on stationary technologies like home networks and Wi-Fi enabled devices to operate, and are limited to media sharing only. “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 a Smartphone and Tablet emerged as a preferred one by many of HSTI’s customers. Unlike the Apple Airplay™ proprietary environment restrictions and hardware dependence, the “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 a Xoom™ or Galaxy tab™, Desire HD™, Iconia™, eee pad™, NEXUS™, ARC™ or Xperia™ among others, the “mobostick™” offers the wireless connectivity many Android users were looking for.
“mobostick™” is utilizing the Android device’s built-in Access Point / Hotspot, while the free mobostick App governs the file sharing. It shares wirelessly the media content in the background, and allows the user to simultaneously use the Smartphone or Tablet in any of its other purposes, without any interruption.
Additionally, its battery footprint while sharing is minimal. Files are not copied or moved from the device and it is totally secure The award-winning proprietary technology of HSTi gained notoriety at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas as a unique media server for Android Tablets and Smartphones, and has other mobile devices on the road map. 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, we now edit and create work files, direct our own family movies, document our lives, but when it comes to sharing media or work files from an Android device, options are limited,” said Harry Diamantopoulos, HSTi’s Managing Director and Co-founder. “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?
And let’s face it, if we were interested in wires we wouldn’t own mobile phones. “mobostick™” is the perfect accessory for your Android devices and provides the portability, compatibility and security desired by today’s demanding consumer”, he emphasized.
The “mobostick™” is expected to be on major Retailers and E-tailers shelves, just in time for the “Back to School” period and is readily available from HSTi’s web-site at http://hsti.com/shop
