Wireless Portable Hard Disk by Seagate
Technology has become very advanced and there are lots of options for everyone these days, but we do keep forgetting that many people have access to slow internet. Though streaming media is great, but it is still better sometimes to have files locally.
Seagate has announced its GoFlex satellite and it might give a lot of options to a number of users.
Go Flex has portable external 500GB drive having a wireless connection. It can stream to 3 devices simultaneously. Its battery promises a 25 hours life, plus it can stream about 5 hours of movie content.
To use with iPads and iPhones, you can use GoFlex Media application. According to Seagate, it will be easily compatible with extra devices as well- through Wi Fi.
This drive gives a lot more space than any iPad or iPhone. It can store all your movies and songs, and it fills the gap between streaming and storage. It will allow you to store things on the external disk and then stream them onto your Wi Fi enabled device. Plus you don’t have to sync movies or songs to your iPad or iPhone. And you can use USB 3.0 cable to transfer media from your computer to your device.
Because iPad and tablet markets are continuously increasing, people need more and more space. Though companies are offering almost unlimited space to their users, but with more and more music and videos to store, most users feel that the space they are given is not sufficient. There are so many apps and features on iPad that a few GBs certainly seem less than enough. And if you are watching videos on the tablet, then just a few movies would use up all your storage. This is where the idea for GoFlex was developed.
The creators of GoFlex Satellite storage wanted to make a simple solution to offer real value to iPad users who wanted extra space. If users cannot purchase a high capacity tablet due to cost considerations, they do not have to worry now, because with GoFlex, they have almost unlimited capacity.
Though the battery life of GoFlex is not really exceptional, but the idea is a great one. It’s not surprising that people are looking forward to this new technology as it arrives this summer.
