I’m just walking out the door but wanted to post this up really quick. Check the Vid below..  It does not connect directly but instead connects wirelessly, so its going to be a bit more then a normal Flash drive.  $99, but if you need to move docs, music or vids back and forth or just need more space, this could be your ticket.

Wearable Inc. has announced the launch of AirStash® with WebDAV. AirStash® is the world’s first USB flash drive for iPad and iPhone, and will be available for demonstration upon request later this week at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The WebDAV firmware update will be available in the first quarter of 2011 and is free to all AirStash® owners.

The WebDAV enhancement to AirStash® remedies a common iPad problem expressed by industry reviewers and consumers alike — the lack of a USB drive. With is device, users can now wirelessly save and share documents from their iPad to AirStash® instead of emailing files over the Internet to another device in the same room. AirStash® provides complete versatility with both wireless and USB operation. Users can quickly transfer gigabytes of files either wirelessly or via USB with the convenience, reliability, and security of a standard USB drive. Measuring 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), the device is pocket-sized and offers offers unlimited storage with up to 32GB per SD card.

  • Two-Way Wireless Connectivity to iPad with WebDAV® iPad users are able to wirelessly save documents from their tablet to the AirStash and share the documents with others immediately using industry standard WebDAV technology. It works with new and existing applications including Apple’s Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. With AirStash®, there’s no more need to email files from one device to another in the same room.
  • Premium Media Streaming Users can store and stream video and audio from their pocket thanks to the compact nature of AirStash®. The premium social multimedia server gives users the freedom to enjoy movies, TV shows, and music wherever they go. Users can even share and play different media files on multiple devices simultaneously with the use of one AirStash®.
  • New App for Easy Photo Browsing & Importing (available January 2011) A new native app for iPad and iPhone users is launching later this month, pending Apple’s approval. The app, built at the request of professional photographers, allows AirStash® owners the ability to browse and batch import photos quickly and easily. Users can browse photos up to 35 megapixels directly from their camera’s SD card without downloading them. Photos can also be imported either at full resolution or resized to a space-saving resolution that matches the device display. This allows professional in-field editing and emailing with 3rd party apps.

AirStash® costs $99.99, and is available to USA and Canada for direct purchase at http://www.airstash.com. It will be available to additional international customers in the first quarter of 2011 and through retailers later this year.
