IFA 2013: Sony's portable wireless server made for your mobile device


Distinguished Member
The new WG-C20 Portable Wireless Server from Sony measures just 14.4x7cm and is 9 mm thin. It is, of course, styled to match the latest Xperia Z1 smartphone, but will also work with other phones and tablets.

You slip in an SD memory card and use the WG-C20 to view and share all your photos, videos, MP3 music plus even office documents and other PC files. For even more storage capacity, you can hook up USB devices like a flash memory, digital camera or portable hard drive.

It’s the first Portable Wireless Server from Sony that supports NFC for fuss-free wireless connection. Just touch NFC-equipped mobile device briefly against the WG-C20: the app wakes up and automatically makes a direct Wi-Fi connection with no fiddly set-up codes.

With support for DLNA, the WG-C20 can act like a mini home media server. Stream stored video, photos and music to your TV, hi-fi, PCs, tablets and other networked DLNA client devices around the house – with no cables needed.


Digital camera users can upload to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, straight from the SD card.

The WG-C20 will also makes a handy tool for sharing content wirelessly when there’s no Wi-Fi hotspot nearby. You can insert a SD memory card and then stream and share your files with up to eight users via their smartphones, tablets or PCs.

You can even use the Internet while the server’s linked via peer-to-peer wireless connection with your smartphone, tablet or PC. The WG-C20 can ‘bridge’ an Internet connection from your normal Wi-Fi router – letting you explore the web, upload content and more from your mobile.

The WG-C20 Portable Wireless Server is available in white, black and purple in Europe from November 2013
