DLink updates the SharePort pocket router, adds in an SD card slot, $50 to the price

Is that a router in your pocket, or are you just happy to see us? Oh, pardon my indiscretion! It is a router in your pocket, Mr. D-Link. That’s right, network chief D-Link launches the SharePort Go II pocket router/hotspot for “families, photographers and business travelers…”

The SharPort Go II is an ambitious overachiever. It creates a mobile network serviced from the cloud. Share files between mobile devices like iPad, iPhone, laptops and other mobile devices. The nexus of such is D-Link’s free SharePort Mobile app, which grants user access to videos, music, pictures and data files on Android or App iOS devices. The device comes complete with a USB port and SD card slot for direct contact content commerce.  You can even use the SharePort Go II pocket router’s USB port to charge your mobile device while on the go.
