QNAP Systems Inc. announced the release of QGenie, a pocket-sized 7-in-1 mobile NAS for file storage, power bank, Internet sharing, and more. The device offers a mobile NAS solution to wirelessly extend the storage space of mobile devices. Users can optimize their storage space by transferring files to QGenie when they need to make room for more photos, music, and apps. It also offers myQNAPcloud service, Qsync, and Qfile mobile app, to create a personal cloud to save, access, sync, and share all the files stored on QGenie on the go.
“QGenie allows connections from up to 20 users, enables simultaneous file access by up to 8 users, and can share multimedia on the go. It can transfer large files on various occasions such as social gatherings, class seminars, and business meetings without the need of sending emails or exchanging USB drives,” said Hanz Sung, product manager of QNAP. QGenie also allows users to back up and retrieve their phonebooks from Android and iOS devices by using Qfile mobile app, thus protecting their important data from loss.
With a built-in 3000mAh power capacity, a fully-charged QGenie can work for more than 10 hours. It can also act as a power bank for charging mobile devices with advanced circuit protection mechanisms, and provides a wireless access point (AP) for sharing Internet access with multiple devices through wired or Wi-Fi connections, Smartphone hotspot, or an LTE/4G/3G dongle. When connected to a PC or Mac via USB 3.0, QGenie automatically turns into a portable SSD for file transfers of up to 120MB/s read and 40MB/s write speeds. QGenie can copy files from the Turbo NAS to QGenie or the other way around with the USB one-touch-copy function, and enjoy easier access to all files via the Qfile mobile app.
