Seagate Debuts GoFlex Wi-Fi 500GB Drive....To The Cloud!

"It must be scary, offering traditional storage in these cloud-based times. Seagate's obviously thought long and hard over this one, and whacked Wi-Fi into their new GoFlex 500GB drive, so you can store/draw from your data-bank, using your phone."

Billed as the "first battery powered hard drive to have Wi-Fi capabilities," the thought is that this will allow you to save some money on the purchase of your device since you won't need as much storage if you carry this drive around with you. I can see advantages (ie no cables to mess with) but I certainly don't see people purchasing this so they can save some room on their portable device, since they would now have to carry around two items instead of one. You can pre-order this $199.00 USD drive now through Amazon.com [affiliate link], with an expected ship date between three and five weeks. In conjunction with this drive, Seagate will also offer interfaces for portable devices but for now the only one that is available is the universal version for iOS devices called the GoFlex Media App [link]. An Android app will be available soon, but in the meantime you can access the drive via your web browser. What are your thoughts on this device? Is it something you would buy in order to save you some money on your portable device purchase? Or is this something you might use as part of your home setup?
