Gigastone SmartBox Now Available at U.S. Retailers Nationwide

Wirelessly Stream and Share Movies, Music and Photos From an SD Card to a Mobile Device

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2013) - Gigastone, a leading Taiwan-based technology innovator, announces the availability of the SmartBox at U.S. retailers nationwide. The patented SmartBox is three devices in one -- a wireless card reader, portable content streamer, and backup battery charger. With a free mobile app for Apple and Android, up to six users can wirelessly stream content to their tablet or smartphone, without an Internet connection.

"We are so excited to launch the first of several mobile-focused products in the U.S.," said Sherry Chapman, senior director of marketing at Gigastone. "The SmartBox has all the features that a frequent business traveler or family on-the-go requires. Perfect for kids and adults alike, the SmartBox is an affordable accessory that every smartphone or tablet owner should have."

Wirelessly Stream Music, Movies, Photos and More
The SmartBox is a revolutionary mobile accessory that gives you the ability to wirelessly stream SD content to an Apple or Android tablet or smartphone. All you need is an SD card with your favorite music, movies and photos loaded on to it, plus the free SmartBox mobile app for Apple or Android, and you can instantly stream those items to your mobile device for up to eight hours.

Perfect for traveling and everyday use on the go, the SmartBox is small enough to fit in your pocket (about the size of a deck of cards) and weighs only .2 pounds. It is compatible with SD, SDHC, SDXC and microSD cards (with included adapter) up to 2TB.

Share With Friends and Family
Up to six devices can connect via WiFi to the SmartBox at the same time and stream different content. Imagine family road trips with the SmartBox -- no more fighting over which movie to watch since everyone can watch something different!

Charge Your Tablet or Smartphone
The SmartBox provides up to four hours of mobile device battery backup with its built-in 2500mAh power charger. Never again run out of power when you really need it!

Never Go Over your Data Limit Again
The SmartBox does not require an Internet connection and therefore won't use up any of your mobile device's data plan. Imagine having your entire media library available for unlimited entertainment without data overage charges!

Extend Your Mobile Device Storage Space
The SmartBox allows for a two-way transfer between mobile devices and SD cards. Did you take too many photos and now your smartphone's storage space is full? Simply transfer some photos to your SD Card using the SmartBox to free up space -- no need for wires or a computer.

Pricing & Availability
The Gigastone SmartBox is currently at Fry's, B&H, BestBuy.com and Amazon.com starting at $39.99. It includes a microSD adapter and USB cable for charging.
