At CES 2013, Seagate
launched a new portable external hard drive which is simply called the Wireless Plus. This new drive, like its predecessor the Satellite, was designed with the mobile world in mind. It features wireless connectivity for smartphones, tablets, consoles, media players, and virtually any wireless device.
While the Seagate Satellite was available with a capacity of 500GB, the new Wireless Plus is currently available as a 1TB drive. In addition to a capacity upgrade, other refinements include improved battery life and software enhancements. One of the most exciting of these enhancements is the ability to write to the Wireless Plus over the wireless connection.
