CHICAGO, Jan. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxell Corporation of America and Wearable Inc. will announce and demonstrate new photo storage, sharing and backup capabilities for the second generation AirStash® at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show. AirStash is the first and only wireless flash drive which uses infinitely expandable SD card media to provide true two-way wireless storage for the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and other wireless devices. With the upcoming version of the AirStash+ companion app, you can snap photos around the world without worrying about running out of iPhone storage or accidentally losing your captured memories. Stop waiting for slow and costly cloud uploading and feel free to leave your laptop at home — just backup your precious photos and videos to the pocket-sized AirStash.

Enjoy your vacation and capture as many memories as you want: if your iPhone is getting full, just run the free AirStash+ app and quickly backup your camera roll (including video) to your AirStash for unlimited storage with interchangeable SD cards. Once your photos are transferred to the AirStash, you can share your photos with up to eight friends instantly through any compatible WiFi-enabled device.

If you have a point-and-shoot or professional SLR camera with you, you can put the camera's SD memory card into AirStash for instant viewing of thousands of photos on your iPad or iPhone wherever you are without a laptop — without waiting for a lengthy import process. View up to 75 MP RAW and JPEG, then share with others directly to their own iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, compatible Android device, Windows Phone, or Kindle Fire. Import your best, edit them with apps such as Adobe Photoshop Express, and email them across the world right from your iPad.

"AirStash now provides a complete professional and consumer photo mobile storage solution that eliminates your laptop — making it the perfect iPhone and iPad companion whether you're on vacation or at work," states Matthew Klapman, Wearable Inc.'s CEO. "Safe and secure backup of your precious memories is now practical on-the-go without waiting and paying to upload to the cloud. And with all the other features already built into AirStash such as wireless HD video streaming and iWork document sharing, AirStash maintains its leadership as the ultimate mobile storage accessory for smartphones and tablets."

Maxell's legacy has always been about saving valued memories. "With simple and wireless point & click photo backup to the pocket sized AirStash, we now make it even easier and faster to save and share your memories," added Rich D'Ambrise, Director of New Business Development for Maxell.

AirStash A02 is the smaller and more powerful second generation device from the pioneers of mobile wireless storage. Measuring just 3.6 x 1.2 x 0.5 inches (93 x 32 x 13 mm) and weighing just 1.4 oz (41 g), AirStash easily fits into your pocket, backpack, briefcase, or handbag for up to seven hours of continuous video streaming thanks to the built-in lithium-polymer battery. AirStash charges from any USB-equipped laptop or desktop (powered ports only) and works as a USB High Speed flash drive & memory card reader. Memory is provided by an SD / SDHC / SDXC* slot supporting beyond 128GB of high-density storage. New features and enhanced device compatibility can be provided by firmware updates downloaded from the Internet. (*SDXC cards require a manual format before use).
