New Delhi: Seagate has announced GoFlex Satellite™ mobile wireless storage, the first battery-powered external hard drive to wirelessly extend the storage capacity of any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device. With 500GB and Wi-Fi access over 802.11 b/g/n and a rechargeable battery, the hard drive provides the ability to carry an entire library of video, music, pictures and documents. Devices are wirelessly connected directly to the GoFlex Satellite drive by use of the free GoFlex Media™ app, available on the Apple App Store and Android Market or a web browser.

Rajesh Khurana, Country Manager India & SAARC, Seagate Technology said, “With the growth of the tablet and iPad markets and the larger volumes of high-quality media now being consumed, there is a clear need for access to content that is not plagued with the challenges of streamed video over the Internet. With the GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage, we wished to create an elegant solution that provides real value to the multitude of tablet users out there by delivering a seamless connection to local storage. With GoFlex Satellite, people will be able to carry their entire media library with them without the need for wires or the web at a fraction of the cost of adding 3G or purchasing or a higher capacity tablet.”
 
The perfect companion for mobile devices, the GoFlex Satellite is capable of providing hours of entertainment for up to three connections. With a stand-by battery life of up to 25 hours, the powerful lithium polymer battery delivers up to five hours of continuously streaming video. To help with extending battery life, the free GoFlex Media App provides a progressive download feature, which temporarily loads the video on to the Android device it is being streamed to, allowing the drive to go into stand-by mode.
 
For rapid loading of media content, the wireless mobile storage comes equipped with the superfast USB 3.0 cable to get files from your computer to the GoFlex Satellite drive. The drive comes complete with a car charger and a compact wall charger. GoFlex Satellite will be available from end-October for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of INR 11,500 (plus local taxes).
