AirStash Wirelessly Adds Extra Storage To Your iPhone

If you’re like me, you regularly struggle to figure out which files you can and can’t load onto your iPhone because it’s just so darn small. But as they say, “there’s an app for that,” or in this case “there’s a chunky-looking USB thingy for that.”

The AirStash is a wireless media server that looks like an oversized USB drive with a power button on the top and an SD slot on the back. The USB end is presumably used to charge the device and the power button turns it on when you’re ready to use it. The info stored on the SD card can then be wirelessly accessed on your iPhone or shared with your friends. They bill it as a “pocketable wireless media server,” so we assume it’ll be targeted at storing stuff like movies and TV shows — exactly the kind of stuff that takes up space on your iPhone in the first place.

Aside from the obvious, there haven’t been any other details released for the AirStash just yet. It’ll be interesting to see how the media is accessed, be it through a native iPhone app or just through the web browser (we’re guessing the latter). Details are expected to be announced at CES later this week.
