    Seagate today announced its GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage drive, which is the first battery-powered external hard drive to wirelessly extend the storage capacity of any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device. The GoFlex boasts a storage capacity of 500GB, Wi-Fi access over 802.11 b/g/n, and a rechargeable battery, and has been made primarily with iOS devices in mind. To this end, Seagate has also launched the GoFlex Media app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, designed to help you seamlessly connect the GoFlex to your iOS device.

    The GoFlex Satellite drive costs $199.99, and can be preordered now from Seagate.com, Amazon and BestBuy.com. Seagate says that it should be available in Best Buy stores in July 2011, and will also be onsale worldwide later in the summer. Click here to download the free app: GoFlex Media (Seagate Technology) for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    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:)

    @Maura Wow that link is quite good. They have all there, and 2 modern videos.
    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
    But this is not the forums problem here lol

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

    The idea sounds ok in theory, but really how much data does one need to carry around. The iPad needs a pc or for upgrades, music transfer, video transfer etc... could that not be attached to a large hard drive and the iPad used for what it has been designed, simple & easy mindless fun.
