For all the advances we've made in mobile computing, transferring files between your phone and your desktop is still kind of a pain in the ass. We've tried using dongles, adapters and even double-sided USB thumb drives, but none of them really solved the problem. Today, Sandisk announced a new solution: a wireless, battery-powered USB flash drive.

SanDisk's Connect Wireless Stick was actually designed to address two problems -- the chore of moving files between devices and the internal storage limitations of modern smartphones. Want to cart some movies and high resolution pictures around with you, but only have 16GB of storage on your phone? Put them on the Connect Wireless Stick: it can hold up to 128GB and can stream data to your phone for 4.5 hours on a single charge. The stick can also automatically back up photos and videos from your phone's the camera roll. Not bad.

As a file transfer system, Sandisk's new stick still sounds a little cumbersome -- but as a small, wireless storage expansion system for iOS and Android devices, it's pretty unique. Interested? It hits stores today for $30-100 in 16, 32, 64 and 128GB sizes.
