Seagate introduces a wireless 500GB cloud-based storage solution for smartphones and tablets
On the cusp of CES 2015, Seagate has its head in the clouds. The company will display at CES, a trio of hard-disk drives that offer cloud-based storage options. One model, the Seagate Seven, will be the thinnest 500GB portable drive available when launched at the end of the month. Another model, the Seagate Personal Cloud, starts at $170 and offers 3TB, 4TB or 5TB storage options for your home. But the model that we are most interested in is the Seagate Wireless.
 
Unlike the metal casing on the Seven, a plastic casing houses the Seagate Wireless. Available in five colors (lime green, cool blue, slate gray, fire-engine red, and white), and sporting 500GB in cloud based storage, this is the model for smartphone and tablet users who need more memory. With the Seagate Wireless, you can stream hundreds of movies and thousands of pictures over your mobile device. And the Wireless also comes with its own Wi-Fi signal, so no internet connection is necessary. The battery will give you 6 hours of power before you need to recharge it. The Seagate Wireless will be available for $130 from Seagate, starting at the end of this month.

The Seagate Wireless will also allow you to share your media content with up to three mobile devices at the same time. It sounds like a useful tool for those who have loaded up their device to the max, with content.
