Seagate introduces a family of wireless solutions with new enhanced features
Seagate today announced the next evolution in the company’s wireless storage category. Seagate Wireless Plus mobile device storage now consists of a family of capacities at 500GB, 1TB and 2TB versions to suit every need along with integration with cloud services, such as Dropbox and Google Drive. The Seagate Media app’s new capability to sync your files on the Seagate Wireless Plus storage with an existing cloud storage provider means that your files are always accessible even when you don’t have network access. The Seagate Media app creates your own Dropbox or Google Drivefolder, so files are available and at the ready. Then once you are back on the network, your files will automatically re-sync to ensure all changes are saved in both the cloud and the Wireless Plus drive.
Seagate Wireless Plus mobile device storage is accessed through the mobile Seagate Media app for Apple iOS, Android, Kindle Fire HD, Windows 8 tablets. Seagate Wireless Plus mobile storage connects to devices over a Wi-Fi connection, which the battery-powered drive emits once powered on. Simply connect to the network by searching for Wireless Plus in your available Wi-Fi networks. The drive creates its own Wi-Fi network, eliminating the need to be within range of an existing network connection.
User can use Wireless Plus to enjoy video, photos, music and even documents on the big screen via Apple Airplay, DLNA or an app designed specifically for Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. Seagate Wireless Plus mobile storage has a supported battery life of up to 10 hours and provides its own Wi-Fi signal to enable access to the drive. The drive is now available at 2TB for an MSRP of $199.99 and 1TB for $179.99 MSRP.
