Seagate Wireless Plus Mobile Device Storage Announced
Seagate Technology has announced the Seagate Wireless Plus mobile device storage at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. This new wireless hard drive is designed to wirelessly stream content for up to eight smartphones or tablets with enough space for up to 500 high-definition movies with its integrated 1TB drive. The Seagate Wireless Plus also has a 10-hour battery life, which is similar to that of most tablets and smartphones.
Seagate Wireless Plus mobile device storage is accessed using the Seagate Media app for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire HD devices and will also work almost any device that can connect to a Wi-Fi network. Users can also use Wireless Plus to enjoy multimedia on the TV screen with Apple Airplay, DLNA or an app designed specifically for Samsung Smart TVs and blu-ray players. The updated Wireless Plus now includes the option to save content and files to the drive wirelessly using the new Seagate Media app.
The new 1TB wireless drive is equipped with a removable SuperSpeed USB3.0 adapter for quick loading of all kinds of data. The Wireless Plus creates its own Wi-Fi network so it isn't necessary to stream or download content from the Internet or to spend money on a data plan. Everything is with the user on a secure and wireless connection at all times.
Seagate Wireless Plus mobile storage is now available on Amazon and BestBuy.com for $199.99.
