IOGEAR's Universal Memory Banks Simplify Transfers Between Portable
Multimedia Devices and Computers
New products eliminate multiple adapters and cable clutter,
enabling users to upload files and images from cell phones, digital
cameras and other devices in one step
IRVINE, Calif., July 7 /- Today's savvy digital consumers can now
easily transfer images and files between their multimedia devices and
computers with IOGEAR's new Universal Memory Banks. Bridging the gap
between PCs / Macs and cell phones, digital cameras and PDAs, IOGEAR's
12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader / Writer and 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader /
Writer provide all-in-one solutions for effortless high-speed,
bi-directional data transfers. These small, high-capacity and
easy-to-carry devices are designed for on-the-go business
professionals, travelers and individuals who use multiple gadgets and
need an easy way to pass data to and from their computers.
These products save space and power, eliminating the hassle of keeping
track of multiple USB cords and reducing energy that is typically used
to transfer data among multiple devices. They also do not require
separate adapters for each memory card, making them a great travel
accessory. Users simply remove the memory card from any multimedia
gadget, insert it into the reader and plug into any computer's USB
port to instantly upload pictures, songs and documents. Individuals
can also use the Universal Memory Banks to download music and other
files to their cell phones.
The 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader / Writer (GFR209 $11.95 MSRP) is
compatible with the most in-demand memory card types, such as SD,
Micro SD, Mini SD, MMC, Memory Stick and MS Duo, making it suitable
for most mobile devices. At only 2.5 inches long and less than one
inch deep, the 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader can be stashed and carried
for easy use anywhere. It also has a built-in cable to avoid blocking
other USB ports when in use.
Ideal for avid digital photographers, the 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader /
Writer (GFR281 $19.95), works with all popular memory cards, making it
the go-to gadget for transferring important information from cell
phones, digital cameras, camcorders, GPS, MP3 and PDAs. This
innovative product needs no additional adapters to work with all
memory card formats, enabling individuals who use many digital devices
to keep everything they need in one spot. For example, a journalist or
family that uses multiple digital cameras can now use one product to
download photos to their computer, rather than several cables.
"We've seen consumers begin to use more devices on a regular basis,
and recognize how frustrating it can be to keep track of multiple
adapters and components," said Miranda Su, executive vice president of
IOGEAR. "We are helping to relieve this pain point by creating
products that allow people to easily consolidate their tools and
perform tasks with one product."
Both the 12-in-1 and 56-in-1 readers can simultaneously read and write
multiple cards at speeds up to 480 Mpbs, and offer a hot swap feature
for replacing storage cards without restarting a computer. In
addition, they are USB 2.0-compliant, as well as backward-compliant
with USB 1.1. Each reader works with Windows 2000, XP or Vista and are
compatible with Mac OSX 10.3.9 or greater.
Both products are immediately available online at http://www.iogear.com/
and through major catalog and online resellers, as well as select
retail outlets. They come with a standard three-year warranty.
