With the proliferation of smart phones and tablet PCs in today's marketplace and homes the need for expandable storage has become paramount. The average usable storage available to one of these portable devices comes in around 32GB with minimums as low as 16GB and maximums up to 128GB. However, the size of media files and applications continues to increase.
There are numerous options for bypassing the need for expanded storage available, such as streaming audio and video media files, using applications like Dropbox and Google Docs for documents and presentations, and "Cloud" storage options provided by Amazon and Apple.
The difficulty in using these services stem from the increased stress placed on data transfer contracts in both the home and through mobile access plans. The more that a person uses these available services, the more that they can be charged in the event of an overage.
Introducing the Patriot Aero
Recently, Patriot announced a new line of external wireless hard disk drives specifically targeting the mobile smart device market. Patriot, as a company, is a leading supplier of performance memory, NAND flash, and mobile accessories and the new Aero line is expected to expand this market base by targeting the specific platforms made by Amazon, Apple, and Google.
The new line of Patriot Aero hard disk drives are scheduled to come in sizes of 500GB and 1TB. The drives will be able to connect with devices using USB 3.0 as well as 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network technology. Also, the device is capable of working for up to 6 hours before needing to be recharged making this storage quite portable for shorter durations.
Not only is it a great backup solution to avoid file and data loss, it is also able to connect up to five concurrent devices for high definition media streaming by using the free Patriot Connect App (available through the Apple App store, the Amazon App store, and Google Play).
