Wi - Drive

Kingston has a portable Wi-Drive, a wireless storage hard drive.  Any idea if this will work with the playbook  or if there are plans for the playbook to work with a wireless external drive?  Thanks

Re: Wi - Drive

I believe it generates its own wifi hot spot and that is how it connects.

Re: Wi - Drive

I'm sure that it can only be used for storage with the playbook but do you know if it could be used for other purposes such as playing apps, video, or music?   Thanks for everyones help!!  Don't want to spend the money if it isn't going to do what I want.

Re: Wi - Drive

you can stream video and look at pics, you cant put apps on it.

 

music can be accessed but not sure about play lists with remote storage.
