The compact unit sports a single USB 2.0 port to which you can hook up external storage to share online. You don't even need a drive - the Mobile also has an SD slot ready for you to run a personal version of Dropbox.

Geared toward smartphone users, the gadget links to software that not only provides you with access to content on your connected storage - media can be streamed across the net - but also duplicates new material on the handset - snaps you've taken, or music you've downloaded - back to base.

All this is implemented in separate apps for Android devices, iPhones and iPads.

In addition to the USB and SD ports, the Mobile has a Gigabit Ethernet jack for the network link.
