Seagate Upgrades Wireless Plus Mobile Storage Expander
Although the Seagate Wireless Plus product line has been around since early 2013, Seagate has just announced that it has made multiple upgrades to its mobile storage expander solution for smartphones, which is a battery operated Wi-Fi portable hard drive that smartphones and tablets can connect to for additional storage. The Seagate Media mobile application has been updated to be compatible with major mobile platforms including Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, Windows, and Windows RT. Additionally, the smartphone application now features integration with cloud storage services, such as Dropbox and Google Drive. The largest upgrade to the Wireless Plus product line is that the hard drives are now available in 500GB and 2TB capacities, complimenting the already available 1TB version.
Consumers can purchase a Seagate Wireless Plus hard drive immediately, with the 1TB model costing $180 and the 2TB model costing $200. The 500GB version of the Seagate Wireless Plus will be available for purchase starting May 9, 2014, with a price of $150.
