Panasonic preps Pocket Server

I wandered wirelessly as a cloud

Boost IT visibility and business value

Panasonic has unveiled a Wireless Pocket Server which lets users stream content to iOS devices, preserving precious storage space on these Apple gadgets as well as other Wi-Fi enabled gear.

Panasonic Pocket Server DY-PS10

Aimed mainly at iPhone and iPad users, the Panasonic Pocket Server DY-PS10 streams files stored on an SD card. It handles a range of formats including H.264, JPEG and MP3 and the battery throws out 10 hours of playback.

The Panasonic DY-PS10 hits Japan on 15 September for ¥14,000 (£113).

Wireless portable storage has been gaining traction in the tech world, the AirStash was among the first of this ilk, but has yet to show up in Blighty.

Kingston's Wi-Drive is a much more recent offering. Similar in concept, it allows up to three iOS devices to connect at once. It doesn't feature removable storage, which certainly looks like Kingston missed a trick there. ®
