Mention the phrase storage for mobile devices and chances are that the first thing that pops into the mind is the microSD card. A company called Fasetto is looking to change that perception, as it has revealed the LINK.
First shown off as a prototype at last year’s CES, the LINK is essentially a portable network-attached storage (NAS) that connects to your portable device (smartphone, camera, tablet, etc.) via an app and a Wi-Fi connection.
It allows you to transfer files to and from the device wirelessly. For those who prefer a wired connection, the LINK comes with a USB Type-C port that allows the NAS to double as a power bank.
Besides file transfer, the LINK can also be used as a streaming device. The device is equipped with Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and a NVMe SSD storage, allowing it to stream content to your device with little issues. Furthermore, the LINK also comes with an optional LTE expansion that allows you to turn the NAS into a Wi-Fi hotspot as well.
The base LINK model comes with 256GB of storage and is priced at USD349, while the top-of-the-line model sports 2TB of storage space with a pricetag of USD1,149. The LTE expansion module will cost an additional USD149, while those looking to boost the LINK’s battery life can get the battery expansion module for USD29.99. The LINK is expected to ship in Spring 2017.
