SEAGATE rolled out public demonstrations of its DAVE storage platform, a technology that allows me to store and share my mobile media on one device for easy access. With DAVE, I can combine the audio and video files that I download onto my removeable terabyte with files that I download over the air. DAVE connects via Bluetooth to these different storage devices, giving me a fully customized, personalized mobile experience while underway in Ireland. I simply pair the device to my mobile phone and that lets me play my digital content on my phone's screen.
If you have a Bluetooth phone alongside DAVE, you get a DVR/MP3 super collection--videos, music, audiobooks, podcasts, GPS data--up to 10GB in your pocket.
If your life revolves around YouTube, you need to get DAVE into your life. You'll save money because you won't pull video across your wireless telco's network. You won't have to worry about dodgy 3G coverage if you've cached your porn videos on DAVE.
When you record a large video on your phone, you can send it to DAVE, push it over to a laptop and upload it over a free wifi node. You could also use DAVE technology to share your content with other mobile phones, PCs, wireless-enabled cameras, or other DAVE mobile storage devices.
DAVE is the size of a centimeter-thick credit card, with dimensions of 3.5 x 4.7 x .47 inches (61 x 89 x 12 mm). It weighs as much as my Nokia N70 (70 grams).
DAVE uses Seagate's Storage Management Module power-saving technology with a rechargeable lithium ion battery that delivers up to 10 hours of media-streaming performance and up to 14 days of standby power.
