AirStash wireless card reader From Wearable Inc.

Wearable Inc.
today announced that AirStash, the first wireless flash drive for
iPad, iPhone, and other WiFi devices, is now available to order for USD
$99.99. AirStash is the only
flash drive that shares documents and streams media from a pocket,
backpack, briefcase, or handbag with its built-in media server
technology. “AirStash is an evolutionary leap forward for the USB
flash drive and the perfect complement to the iPad. It’s the first flash
drive that shares and streams files directly and securely over WiFi,
and the only flash drive which works with Apple’s new tablet,” said
Matthew Klapman, Wearable’s CEO. “iPad users can leave their laptop at
home and use AirStash to distribute documents and receive files from
computers, view photos from a digital camera, or carry and stream
additional movies and music with no Internet connection or transfer
cable required.”

AirStash is the most cost-effective way to expand your
iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch by using SD and SDHC cards (up to 32GB). A
single 16GB card with a street price of under $40 provides enough space
to store 20 hours of video or thousands of documents, music, and videos.
Digital camera users can conveniently view and easily share pictures
with friends and family by inserting their camera’s card into AirStash.
The unique wireless media server creates a WiFi network from the
contents of the memory card, enabling multiple users to view and stream
media simultaneously.

“The AirStash portable server supports any WiFi-enabled
device with a web browser,” said Brian Mastenbrook, Wearable’s CTO. “We
believe that users who choose Apple devices expect products that can be
used out of the box without lengthy configuration or installation
procedures, and AirStash delivers. We’ve used HTML5 technology to
provide a superb interface for users of the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch
without requiring any app installation.”

AirStash is the first hardware device that leverages
Apple’s implementation of the upcoming HTML5 standard to provide a rich
interface that allows iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users to view,
organize, and stream media without installing anything from the app
store. Any document, photo, audio, or video format supported by Apple’s
iPhone OS can be viewed or streamed with one tap after connecting to the
AirStash wireless network. Users can choose to enable WPA2 encryption
to protect their data, or create an open network for easy sharing.

Measuring just 3.6 x 1.9 x 0.5 inches (92 x 47.8 x 12.2 mm)
and weighing just 1.5 oz (43 g), AirStash easily fits into your pocket,
backpack, briefcase, or handbag for up to five hours of continuous video
streaming thanks to the built-in lithium-polymer battery. AirStash
charges from any USB equipped laptop or desktop (powered ports only) and
works as a USB 2.0 High Speed flash drive & memory card reader.
Memory is provided by an SD / SDHC slot supporting up to 32GB of
high-density storage. New features and enhanced device compatibility can
be provided by firmware updates downloaded from the Internet.
