Portable Wireless Server


Sydney, 24 July 2013 – Sony Australia today announced the new Portable Wireless Server (PWS) from Sony which gives consumers new options for wirelessly viewing, sharing and storing content on the go from their smartphones. Available October 2013, this 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 convenience of the Portable Wireless Server makes it a must-have for the many Australians who are reliant on their mobile devices,” said Abel Makhraz, Marketing Manager, Personal Entertainment at Sony Australia. “Not only can you easily charge your phone when you’re on the go, but you can backup, upload and share your photos, videos and music.

With a wireless connection, users can conveniently transfer content to and from smartphones utilising the PWS regardless of whether you have a memory card slot. The PWS can also connect to several devices via Wi-Fi at one time, allowing up to eight users to simultaneously share and playback content.

The PWS also functions as a back-up power source for smartphones or digital cameras. Consumers can use the PWS for up to 10 hours of continuous MP3 playback. All controls are managed by the smartphone through the “PWS Manager” App (available at Google Play or App Store).

Sony’s new Portable Wireless Server will go on sales in Australia during October 2013 with pricing and availability to be confirmed closer to launch.
