AirStash WiFi memory card reader launches

AirStash may be a reasonably stupid name, but the gadget itself is pretty clever.  Ostensibly an oversized memory card reader for your SD/SDHC and microSD/SDHC media, the AirStash works just as you'd expect when plugged in via USB but, when unplugged, has a WiFi connection so that you can wireless stream content to an iPhone, iPod touch or any wireless-enabled gadget with a browser.

The company reckon it'll be useful for digital photographers looking to more easily access their digital media – though who don't want an Eye-Fi card – as well as iPhone owners looking to add extra capacity.  AirStash use HTML5 for their browser-based interface, and you can access documents as well as media files on more than one gadget at a time.

Recharging is done while the AirStash is plugged into a USB port, and the WiFi b/g connection can either be left unlocked or secured with WPA2 encryption.  A full charge is good for five hours use; the AirStash is available to order now, priced at $99.99.
