The connection is made through a new mobile app developed by SanDisk that is compatible with iOS, Android, and Amazon's Kindle Fire. SanDisk says that the device can stream video to up to three devices at the same time making this somewhat of a portable media server. The new device is able to stream up to four hours on a single charge and boasts a wireless range of 150 feet. A 16GB version will retail for $49.99 while a 32GB model will run you about $60.
