Smartphones store a lot of personal contents and yet, despite the risk of data loss, it’s easy to forget to backup your device regularly.
Toshiba is developing a new product for backing up and charging Android phones in a single user operation. It is designed to make data backup at home as simple as charging a phone – something most people have to do on a daily basis.
As well as backing up critical data, the solution will also offer a special function for simplifying data transfer between devices, ideal for users who want to migrate contacts, photos and videos from an old phone to a new phone.
Working with an easy-to-use Android app, Toshiba’s new product can also facilitate the management of data without the need for a host PC. PC users will also be able to use the technology to back up data via USB Type-A and USB Type-C interfaces.
The new product is currently being previewed at IFA 2016 (2nd – 7th September) before its official launch in 2017.
