I’m really liking the name of Segate’s new technology. It promises to deliver 10-20 GB of wireless storage in an accessory smaller than most slim-line mobile phones — about the size of a centimeter-thick credit card. Using Bluetooth or WiFi connections, it is designed to store, play and share digital files on mobile phones, PCs, and other wireless-enabled devices.
DAVE is to cell phones what PC Virtualization and Storage System products provided by Ceedo, Mojopac and U3 are to PCs. Those applications transform an iPod or other USB (2.0) storage devices into a portable PC.
DAVE will change the way we store data and it opens up the possibilities of your mobile phone being able to hold all your music, video and digital images in one device when your on the go. For photo buffs it could be the must have product.
DAVE along with the Palm announcement of killing it’s LifeDrive is just another sign that the Smartphone market has killed unconnected PDAs.
