D-Link has launched a new product DIR-505 that has been designed to give tablet and smartphone users access to a host of connectivity features while at home or on the go.

The new D-Link All-in-One Mobile Companion allows users to connect to a Wi-Fi network whenever available and also gives access to USB based sharing features, PC Mag reports.


The company explained that the device allowed users to share music, video, photos and other files between a USB drive or an external hard drive and their iPhone, iPad or Android devices.

The DIR-505 will also allow users to sync files and charge their smartphones, the company revealed while launching the product at the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas.

The All-in-One Mobile Companion, which is smaller than a standard computer mouse, also has an ethernet port to connect to the internet in a conference room or hotel room.

“The All-in-One Mobile Companion DIR-505 is perfect for travelers and mobile professionals, allowing people to access content on an external hard drive or thumb drive from any mobile device, as well as sync videos, music and photos, automatically,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of marketing, D-Link North America.

“In addition, it serves as a great travel router/access point for instant wireless from any hotel or conference room where a network already exists,” he added.
