Leef Launches Bridge 3.0, Exclusively Available at RadioShack
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Leef Technology LTD. (Leef) today announced Leef BridgeTM
3.0, the first USB 3.0 flash drive for file sharing between Android (News - Alert)
phones and tablets, Macs and PCs. Leef Bridge 3.0 will make its U.S.
debut on January 19 at select RadioShack stores nationwide as a retail
exclusive for 60 days. Leef Bridge 3.0 is designed using USB 3.0
technology to deliver file transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than
USB 2.0 devices.
"We're excited about the way the RadioShack team has embraced Leef
Bridge 3.0," said Jonny Anderson, partner and director of product design
at Leef. "As one of the largest retailers of Android phones in North
America, we believe the RadioShack team is uniquely positioned to
demonstrate how easy it is to transfer files from an Android phone to
another device with no cable, cloud service, Wi-Fi or data connection
needed. Leef Bridge 3.0 is so simple it's beautiful."
Leef Bridge 3.0 features both a micro USB connector and full-size USB
connector that access the same memory so users can share content,
photos, videos, music and documents to and from any compatible device.
In addition, Leef Bridge 3.0 is capable of read times up o 90 MB per
second, and ensures slick video and music playback directly from the USB
drive, without the interruptions or delays that accompany low-grade USB
flash drive products.
"We are always looking for new products that can enrich our customers'
connected lives, so it is exciting to be able to exclusively introduce
Leef Bridge 3.0," said Paul Rutenis, chief merchandising officer at
RadioShack. "We anticipate RadioShack customers will love how this
product blends functionality, design and speed to simplify their mobile
file transfer needs."
In addition to increased performance, Leef Bridge 3.0 boasts a
significantly smaller, more compact design than its predecessor. The
device maintains Bridge's signature exposed slide-and-lock tray design,
which enables users to easily switch to the USB connector appropriate
for device connection.
Leef Bridge 3.0 is currently compatible with mobile devices operating
Android Jelly Bean OS 4.1 or higher and a micro USB On-The-Go (OTG)
connector. To transfer files, users can use the built-in file management
system in their Android devices or download Metago's free ASTRO File
Manager app from Google (News - Alert) Play.
Leef's first Bridge device was reviewed in June by The New York Times,
Gizmodo, Ubergizmo and hundreds of reviewers worldwide. Leef Bridge 3.0
is the newest member of Leef's family of innovative, beautifully
designed products, and represents Leef's continued dedication to mobile
