Enables Multimedia File Sharing between Tablets and Windows-formatted USB Hard Drives
Paragon’s Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology was selected to be embedded into Acer’s Android™ Honeycomb-based ICONIA TAB A500 and ICONIA TAB A501 tablets. By adding NTFS support, users can easily transfer music, video, and other data file types between a Windows-formatted storage device and their tablets.
Paragon’s UFSD technology enables systems and devices to have full access to file systems which otherwise would not be supported. Acer is licensing Paragon’s UFSD-based NTFS for Android driver to enhance the capability of their tablets, since most hard drives are formatted for NTFS. Tablets without the Paragon driver require users to first reformat their hard drive to the older FAT file system before they can be used.
“We are very excited to have Acer as a strategic partner and for their innovative ICONIA TAB tablets to include Paragon’s unique USFD technology,” said Tom Fedro, president at Paragon Software Group. “This collaboration seamlessly extends the capabilities of an Android-based device, especially for multi-media applications, helping to ensure end users have a predictable and enjoyable experience with their tablet.”
