Want this with a 3g/LTE modem built into it.

As part of work flow using a DSLR with an ipad, I'd like a way of backing up images from an ipad that doesn't involve using a computer. Presumably without jailbreak this device doesn't let you?

"One downside is that, being FAT32; the Wi-Drive won’t take files larger than 4GB, so those with particularly high bit-rate video files won't find this as useful as many, but it’s unlikely most users will find this limit a problem."

So it's useful for storing the small files there is plenty of room for on-device but not the larger files that we can't fit onto our devices? Complete failure :(

it doesnt need one as it can be used without wifi

just change the bit rate then. Its easy

My tablet doesn't have a 3g data connection. Nor does my laptop. This with a Mifi/Hotspot function would be ideal.

Re-encode everything, store a copy of everything? Yes. I can see that being viable :|

Does anyone know if the WI-Drive can be charged using an iPad charger

does anyone know whether you can transfer books from an Ipad to the Wi-Drive?

No it requires a mini USB

Of course it is. Re-encoding is trivially simple, and neither a phone, nor even an ipad, takes advantage of high resolution video anyway. The file sizes for optimized video are about a tenth the size of the originals with no perceptible difference in the video quality on the devices we're discussing. Ten times the amount of stored content, with no large file problems is a clear win.

So you'll need to BYO mini USB cable?
