Good news for all the Android users. Western Digital has recently come up with the launch of its new storage drive for Android users in India. This SanDisk Dual Drive is a mobile storage pen drive, specially designed for Android smartphone users who are always on the quest for some extra storage. This pen drive ranges from 16GB to 128GB and the starting price is fixed at Rs.700. Right now, the availability is ensured through all the e-commerce platforms and in retail outlets all across the country.
As per the survey by Western Digital, around 60 percent smartphone users in the country share over 10MB of data daily.

Again it needs to be remembered that these pen drives are only compatible with Android smartphones that support USB with OTG. The company also believes that given the number of Android smartphones, available at Rs 10,000 and supporting OTG in the market, these pen drives will come in handy for quick data transfer to easily free up storage on their phones.
