      Hmm yes it seems to be great since my iPad 2 loves more WiFi than anything else lol
      But is it my eyes or is that thicker than the current Laptop / Notebook USB external HDs? And how it handles WiFi connectivity? Can I have my home WiFi and the WiFi to the HD active at the same time or do I need to join this HD to my home WiFi. I guess a Video is needed lol.
      And regarding speed.... Yes not even a question sure it will be WiFi speed.
      At least they pack it with a USB 3 Connector... Connector?Hmm even bulkier then...
      Anyway at least they will have or have already an app:)

      The app is called GoFlex Media
      The only thing which is not working right now is the download Link for GoFlex Satellite Data Sheet which would doawnload file ds_goflex_satellite.pdf

      All it needs is interchangeable batteries for swapping on-the-go to increase usage time.

      Or use one of those powermonkey battery packs to power it via USB?
