Toshiba Announces Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD
Showcase and Store Music, Video and Photos Wirelessly With Up To Eight Devices
IRVINE, Calif. — Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today introduced the Canvio AeroMobile™ Wireless SSD, a product that offers a smart, easy and more reliable way to store, stream, and share files and media from mobile devices without ever attaching a single cable.
Toshiba’s new portable Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD is sleek and durable, combining the convenience and capacity of portable wireless storage with the proven durability and performance of solid state hard drive technology. This slim, lightweight unit allows users to upload media instantly, freeing their smartphones, tablets and cameras to take thousands of pictures and video. Up to eight devices including smartphones, laptops, tablets and PCs can access the Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD.
“Toshiba strives to ensure that all of our storage products are simple to use and powerful in this ever changing technological environment,” said Maciek Brzeski, vice president of product marketing and development, Branded Storage Products, Toshiba Digital Products Division. “The Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD makes the process of uploading and accessing content easier than ever.”
The Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD uses solid state drive technology which also offers greater durability, faster performance and lower power consumption than external hard drives, resisting impact and vibration. It slips right into a pocket and is amazingly light, weighing in at a mere 4.2 ounces. Limited smartphone storage space is no longer a worry with this device, as there is 128GB1 of space within immediate reach. Users can confidently use it indoors and out, knowing their data is safe and secure and backed by Toshiba’s one-year limited warranty2.
The versatility of this product is unmatched – it’s the perfect option for accessing content while on the road or camping, where there’s no traditional Wi-Fi signal in sight. The Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD features a built-in rechargeable battery with up to 8 hours of battery life for video streaming3 for extended times away from a power source. With the built-in SD card slot, you’ll be able to offload photos and free up SD card space quickly and easily. Finally, an internet pass-through mode means browsing the web and accessing the Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD can be done simultaneously.

Beginning today, the Canvio AeroMobile Wireless SSD is available for purchase at select retailers and on toshiba.com/us/storage for $209.99 MSRP4 for the 128GB model.
