Samsung Wireless is one pretty interesting device to have. Do you want a 1.5 TB portable hard? Samsung Wireless is the answer. Do you want an external battery to charge your device? Samsung Wireless again. Do you want a Wi-Fi enabled media hub to connect to your smartphone? Well, you know the answer. The price of this new device is $179 and will go on sale in the near future. The beautiful part of it is that it can act as a portable USB 3.0 hard drive with a capacity of 1.5 TB, but it can be a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 5 devices at once. Using an Android app, you could access the media stored on Wireless for over the air access.

Another feature is that the hard can power itself to up to seven hours when sharing files. That time can be smaller if you want to charge a device in the same time. We think that for that price you get a lot of features from Samsung Wireless. A press release says that the device is available globally already but we couldn’t find  it on the Samsung website. It’s a big probability that it will start rolling out in the next couple of weeks.

The same press release says that:

“While the drive is mentioned as being a Samsung drive, it’s actually manufactured and marketed by Seagate. The reason why Samsung’s name is still on it is based on some governmental drama that didn’t let Seagate change the name of the Samsung hard drive operations in South Korea even after acquiring it, though that’s not something we’ll go into detail about here.”

We think that Samsung Wireless is pretty cool and we definitively buy one !
