Lexar JumpDrive M20 Mobile USB 3.0 Flash Drive Transfers and Shares Files between On-The-Go-Enabled Devices without Cables or Wi-Fi

  • 2-in-1 micro-USB and USB 3.0 drive offers quick and easy transfer between AndroidTM On-The-Go (OTG)-enabled tablets, smartphones, and computers without cables or Wi-Fi
  • Read speeds of up to 120MB/s enable transfer of a 3GB HD video clip in less than one minute
  • Features a thumb-slide design to retract both micro-USB and USB 3.0 connectors
  • Available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities

Lexar, a leading global brand of flash memory products, today announced the Lexar® JumpDrive® M20 Mobile USB 3.0 flash drive. Featuring two connectors - micro-USB and USB 3.0 - the new drive allows users to easily transfer playlists, photos, videos, and files with On-The-Go (OTG)-enabled Android tablets or smartphones without the use of cables or Wi-Fi.*

The Lexar JumpDrive M20 Mobile offers read speeds of up to 120MB/s** and can transfer a 3GB HD video clip in less than one minute*** - a faster and more convenient solution than using Wi-Fi or data connectivity. The drive sports a thumb slide design to retract both connectors and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

"Smartphones and tablets have made it easier for consumers to access their music, videos, and other files anytime, anywhere. But in the past, access required either a Wi-Fi connection or data usage," said Aaron Lee, director of USB product marketing, Lexar. "The new JumpDrive M20 Mobile USB 3.0 flash drive lets consumers not only quickly retrieve, but share and transfer digital files on the go and between devices - all without searching for a hotspot, using data, or plugging in."

Lexar JumpDrive M20 Mobile will be available in October 2014 with MSRPs of £25.99 (16GB), £39.99 (32GB), and £79.99 (64GB). All Lexar JumpDrive designs are compatible with PC and Mac® systems**** and are tested in the Lexar Quality Labs facilities with more than 1,100 digital devices, to ensure performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability.
