    Similar in function to AirStash, the newly announced Kingston "Mobi SX" is a WEP-secured wireless storage device that allows up to three people to store and then stream media files.

    I will definitely be getting this or the AirStash when they are available.

    I still prefer my AirStash. Since it uses SD cards, it's more flexible about storage size, and you can swap cards at a whim; I currently use two 32GB cards with mine giving me access to 128GB of storage total. I wish 64GB cards were cheaper...

    Am I correct in my assessment that these devices only allow you to play files from the device to the iPad and they do not let you store files from the iPad to the device?

    Currently, yes on the AirStash. By the end of the month, Wearable Inc. will supposedly offer an upgrade that will let WebDAV-compatible software like QuickOffice to save files to the AirStash in the same way they let you save to DropBox and MobileMe.
