PQI Introduces the New iConnect Mini at CES 2016
The world’s smallest flash drive storage for iPhone / iPad / iPod devices available for the first time in the USA
December 10th, 2015 – Taipei, Taiwan – Foxlink, PQI, the world’s leading brand of peripheral storage accessories for portable devices, announces the availability of the revolutionary iConnect Mini Lightning flash drive for Apple devices. The iConnect Mini will be on display for the 1st time during the CES tradeshow taking place January 6th– 9th, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, located in the South Hall 1st floor, booth # 20651.
The iConnect Mini measures at an astoundingly small size of only 44.6mm x 12.6mm x 8mm, (approx. 1 ½” x ½” x ¼”), or roughly equivalent to the size of an average person’s thumb. Yet, the iConnect Mini still offers storage capacity up to 128GB, which is made possible through PQI’s exclusive COB 3.0 technology.
The iConnect Mini offers a one button photo and video back-up function, allowing the user to back up all photos and videos stored on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod within a matter of minutes. This feature can be performed manually or automatically. When the iConnect Mini is attached to an iPhone, it can automatically save all images and videos directly to the device, so that the iPhone storage capacity is not impacted and remains untouched. For added security, the iConnect Mini supports the Apple Touch ID security, using an individual’s unique finger print to prevent others from accessing or altering any of your images and videos.
“Independent research has reported that the average iPhone owner uses their camera app at least 3 times a day. With the average picture size from an iPhone 6S at nearly 3MB, and the most popular iPhone storage capacity being only 16GB, it’s easy to see why 64% of iPhone users want more storage space.” proclaimed PQI Global CEO, Spencer Chiu. “The iConnect Mini’s tiny size makes it easier to carry it in your pocket or on a keychain to dramatically increase your storage capacity and avoid the dreaded, “Cannot Take Photo”, prompt when you are trying to use the camera app on your iPhone.”
The iConnect Mini is an ideal companion for owners of iPhones with a lightning connection as it provides up to 128GB* of added storage, backs-up photos and videos with Apple Touch ID protection, and easily transfers content quickly between your iPhone and a computer or tablet through its high speed USB 3.0 connection.
INCREASE iPHONE’S STORAGE CAPCITY
The iConnect Mini expands your iPhone’s storage capacity, especially on the lower capacity 16GB iPhones. The iConnect mini allows you to take more high-resolution 12 megapixel photos, live photos, 4K videos, and store them directly in its memory without using up precious storage on the iPhone’s internal memory. The iConnect Mini has an extendable Lightning connector that allows it to stay connected to an iPhone without needing to remove the exterior protective casing.
INSTANT ONE-BUTTON BACK-UP
The iConnect Mini allows the user to backup images and videos with the push of a single button. The iConnect Mini is so fast that it can back-up over 1,000 pictures captured through the iPhone camera and transfer it to the iConnect Mini in just over 4 minutes.
TRANSFER BETWEEN ALL YOUR DEVICES
iConnect Mini lets you easily transfer and share files on all your devices without needing to interface through iTunes or iCloud. Share content stored on your iPhone directly to your computer or from your computer on to your iPhone, via the iConnect Mini with dual-interface USB3.0 and Apple-certified Lightning connector. Easily back-up your data from your iPhone to your Mac or PC, or transfer media and other files from your Mac or PC onto your iPhone.
MADE TO MATCH YOUR iPHONE COLOR
The sleek and modern design of PQI iConnect Mini is made to match your iPhone with matching metallic finish to pair it with your gold, grey and rose gold device. The 360 rotating cap conveniently protects the connector when not in use and can be attached to a keychain or carrier for easier transport and storage.
The PQI iConnect Mini are engineered to meet Apple’s design specifications and are MFI (Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) Certified.
