Storage firm Buffalo has unveiled new portable storage offering that offers Wi-Fi connectivity and 500GB storage so users can access reams of content on the move.
The MiniStation Air device supports the 802.11n standard and can be accessed via smartphones, tablets, laptops and PC devices.
This should mean users can take far more data with them on the move, such as videos, music, documents and other data, which could prove of benefit to regular business travellers and mobile sales teams.
The MiniStation Air is compatible with Windows 7 or and Vista, Mac OS X 10.5 or later, Android 2.3, 3.0 and 4.0 or later, as well as iOS 4.0 or later. It also features a USB 3.0 connector dock for direct data transfers of 5GBit/s.
The built-in battery offers four hours continuous use and can be re-charged via an AC-adapter, USB, or car chargers.
Paul Hudson, sales director in Northern Europe at Buffalo, said that the device would help meet the demands of those increasingly using a mobile device as their main device but that lack the necessary storage for their data needs.
"Apple, and other devices, are clearly being increasingly used in the workplace but the largest capacity iPad today remains only 64GB, which is limiting - so the need for additional storage is clear," he told V3.
"Providing a wireless connection to the new 500GB MiniStation Air offers a great asset to work users. Furthermore, multiple iPads can make a simultaneous connection, which makes it really easy to share data."
The firm has not yet confirmed when the device will be available but it will cost £119.99 from retailers of Buffalo products when launched.
