Icy News: Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile HDD Supports Android

"Seagate Technology LLC unveiled a new app for Android operated mobile devices that will provide a wireless connection to 500GB of storage to stream up to 300 HD videos. 

Introduced in May of this year, GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage is a battery-powered external hard drive to wirelessly extend the storage capacity of any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device. 

Although previously compatible with Android tablets and phones by using the device's browser, the experience with GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage will now be enhanced through the connectivity and added features of the GoFlex Media App for Android.

Devices are wirelessly connected directly to the GoFlex Satellite drive by use of the free GoFlex Media App-available now on Android Market and iTunes for iOS devices-or a web browser. GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage is currently available worldwide for a manufacturer's suggested retail price of$199.99 USD..." - via Storage Newsletter

Seagate releasing an app for Android to use with their GoFlex Satellite to access their files is a pretty neat idea. However, is this too late? With the internet being as big as it is, is there is a need for this on android where YouTube and Netflix are available. Let us know what you think!
