Seagate intros Wi-Fi hard drive for iKit

Extra storage minus the cables

Seagate has taken the wraps off a wireless hard drive designed as additional storage for iPhones and iPads.

To that end the GoFlex Satellite line - 500GB only, so far - has on board 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and a rechargeable battery. Download the app Seagate has posted for iOS devices, and 'Pads, 'Pods and 'Phones can access whatever's stored on the drive.

There's an Android version coming in the summer.

Load up the drive from your computer over USB 3.0

The GoFlex Satellite goes on sale in the US in July, and internationally "later this summer". ®
