Patriot Gauntlet WiFi Storage Solution Announced
Patriot has announced the Gauntlet, an entry into the wireless storage solutions category which is currently populated with a device from both Seagate and Kingston. Patriot's take is a little different however, while it supports up to five wireless users, and has apps for Apple and Android devices, and can offer passthrough Internet access, Patriot will offer the Gauntlet without a drive, so users may insert any 2.5" SATA drive they have on hand.
Patriot will also sell models with embedded flash storage and may offer various other configurations in the future. The Gauntlet will offer USB 3.0, 802.11 a/b/g/n, WPA security, 150 Mbit transfer rate and a Lithium-ion polymer 3350 for up to 5 hours of continuous streaming.
Pricing and release date have not been released.
