Toshiba has just announced their Toshiba Canvio Connect portable external hard drive which will be very different from past Canvio releases, in the sense that this external hard drive will also let you access as well as share files straight from the device itself. This would clearly make it the first of its kind in the market, where you can carry up to 2TB of external storage space in a slim and compact form factor, and for fashionistas, Toshiba has got your back covered too, as it will come in several different colors, ranging from black to silver, blue, red and white.
Imagine performing a back up of all your videos and photos straight from compatible smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices which are able to run Toshiba Storage’s iOS or Android app. In a nutshell, as long as the Toshiba Canvio Connect remains hooked up to an Internet-enabled PC which remains powered on, users can remotely access the entire gamut of their files, photos, music and movies from any device, regardless of their geographical location. Toshiba will entice curious onlookers by throwing in 10GB of free cloud storage for storing “always available” copies of important files. Out later in the middle of May, the Toshiba Canvio Connect will come in 500GB, 750GB, 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB capacities, retailing for $99, $109.99, $129.99, $169.99 and $189.99, respectively.
