Simply put, the Wi-Drive lets you store any content that you may be interested in accessing remotely from any wi-fi enabled device. In our demo, a representative from Kingston uploaded everything from music, pictures, documents and even movies, and with what apppeared to us to be little if any lag, was able was able to stream this content to an iPad as well as an iPhone simlutaneously.

While Kingston states that you can use Wi-Drive with up to three devices simultaneously, that limitation isn't hard-wired. Simply put, you can access the Wi-Drive from any number of devices simultaneously. The thing is, the more devices accessing the device, and depending on the type of content being accessed, things could bog down.
