Seagate D.A.V.E. Technology portable hard drive

So I stumbled upon this at one of the shows surround CES and thought it was pretty cool and I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen it or anything like it before. It looks like a fairly run of the mill external, pocket-sized, bus-powered hard drive, but its not.

Well it can be bus powered, and is powered by some sort of mini-USB connection, but you can connect to it via WiFi or Bluetooth. The reps at the booth didn’t seem to know much about it, but one of them said it will work with your cell phone.

The tag didn’t offer up much info either, but it says it goes up to 60GB and has an open development platform. I want one, I have cell phones and laptops and all sorts of things like that that could connect to this thing and it would be a lot easier than have to try and find the right cable and then having to physically move it closer to whatever I was trying to connect to it, like I said, I want one. I couldn’t get any details on price or availability, though it seems from their website that its one of their OEM products and is designed to be re-branded by whatever company wants to use it, but I want to buy just one, slap a SlashGear URL and logo on it if you have to, but I just want one.
