Seagate announces new wireless hard drive
Tuesday, January 8, 2013 @ 3:01am

Seagate has announced the upcoming launch of a new wireless hard drive that offers 1 TB of storage. The Wireless Plus features built-in WiFi capabilities that allows the drive to create its own network. Because of this, data can be streamed from the drive directly to another device without the need for any sort of actual internet connection. A 10-hour battery is also built directly into the device, and an included USB 3.0 adapter lets users quickly transfer content between the drive and a computer.



Seagate is also offering a free media app for the iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, and Android devices that can be used to wirelessly access the drive from a mobile device. Content can be streamed from the drive to multiple devices, including support for streaming up to 3 different HD movies to different devices simultaneously. Pre-orders for the Wireless Plus can be placed online for $200.
