LONDON, 26 June, 2012 - Known for delivering premium external storage solutions engineered to meet the needs of the Apple Mac(r) community, G‐Technology today announced availability of its G‐CONNECT wireless storage solution, the first in a family of products providing instant, wireless storage and 802.11n WiFi Internet access for your Apple iPad, iPhone(r) and many other mobile devices. The G‐Technology G‐CONNECT wireless storage solution is available in the UK now for £159.99 (500GB) through authorised retail and distribution channels.

The G‐CONNECT solution provides on‐the‐go wireless access[1] to content that's not already loaded on iOS devices, including favourite movies, music, books, photos and documents. G‐CONNECT provides access to five+ simultaneous devices, depending on the workload, and supports up to five SD or three HD video streams at once[2].

When connected to a network via Ethernet, the G‐CONNECT drive becomes a personal WiFi Internet access point, allowing users to view online content, while streaming stored content on the drive. Users can easily access content through the G‐CONNECT iOS app, available now in the App Store(r), or through a browser. Android(r) devices can access content through a web browser, with a native app available this summer.

"The ever-growing list of mobile devices has created user expectations that their favourite content ought to be available wherever they are. G-CONNECT is a great way to make that a reality. It lets people safely store a huge number of films or music tracks, at the same time enabling them to access and share content wherever they are," said Steve Pereira, vice president, general manager, HGST Europe. "The device has proved to be an extremely popular G-Technology product in North America and we're glad to be offering it in the UK."
