First Look – Seagate GoFlex – Wireless HDD for iPad

Imagine having a 500GB harddisk where you can stream 300 HD movies on-the-go to your iPad, or better yet, to three (3) iPads at the same time. A harddisk with up to 5 hours battery life. How about if I tell you that it can stream not only to you iPad but pretty much any mobile devices with WiFi connectivity? Well, this is the Seagate GoFlex.

The GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage device is part of the Seagate GoFlex Storage System. This innovative system makes it incredibly easy to upgrade or change the interface on your GoFlex Satellite device, so you can always get optimal transfer speeds when loading and syncing your media.

  • Includes USB 3.0 connectivity for fast data transfers (fully compatible with USB 2.0)
  • Other available interfaces include FireWire 800 and powered eSATA (sold separately)

The GoFlex is to be launched this coming July with a price tag of US$199.99.  I personally cannot wait to get hold of one, what about you? For more, check out the following video.
