I would like to see WD's response to Seagate's GoFlex Satellite portable HDD.
I would suggest WD to have tri-band GBit WIFI connection in 2.5" Element portable form factor (with built-in Lithium Polymer battery).
'Qualcomm recently released the AR9004TB chipset. This tri-band wireless setup adds 60GHz WiGig to the usual 2.4 and 5GHz dual-band 802.11n formula for "multi-gigabit in-room performance." Though far from finalized, the 802.11ad standard being pushed by the WiGig alliance should be able to hit speeds of 5Gbps."
At 5Gbps, it will be as fast as the new USB 3.0 standard! But now WD don't have to worry about the "weak cable problem"
There are many portable hard drives available for home use that requires USB connectivity. Though USB connectivity is ideal for data transmissions, developing a portable hard drives that also provide wireless connectivity would help for homes with many desktop/laptop/Mac/IPAD devices to share the wireless enabled portable hard drive as a shared drive over the home network much as wireless printers do and facilitate sharing of music, photo and video files easily.
Please feel free to post your opinions on this idea.
