Seagate and Orange Business Services UK have announced they are joining efforts to ease the travails of the mobile professional. The companies have agreed to showcase Seagate’s Digital Audio Video Experience (DAVE) for Orange enterprise customers.
Announced earlier this month the DAVE device promises to provides substantial wireless storage capacity for digital files from mobile phones, PCs and other wireless-enabled devices.
The combination of Orange high-speed data services and DAVE mobile storage technology will provide a vital mobile data backup option, enabling professionals to quickly download and store large business documents from email and also access corporate servers for up-to-date files and information.
“Seagate’s joint effort with Orange Business Services will enable mobile professionals to share, save and transport digital content in a completely new, more efficient fashion”, said Patrick King, senior vice president and general manager of Seagate’s consumer electronics business unit.
The DAVE platform is designed with Bluetooth 2.0 EDN and WiFi 802.11b/g technology for access to smartphones within 9 meters (30 feet), allowing users to slip a DAVE-enabled device safely into a purse, briefcase or pocket while it is in use. The DAVE reference design, roughly the size of a centimeter-thick credit card and weighing only 70 grams, is built for convenience and portability.
No details on a release or price, but as DAVE is still in prototype phase don't expect anything soon.
