    Default I-FlashDrive Eases iOS Memory Expansion Woes


    Although there have been products designed to expand the memory capabilities of iOS devices before, none may do it quite as elegantly as the new i-FlashDrive from PhotoFast. This new product, about the size of a typical USB flash drive, comes equipped with the standard USB connector on one side, and a 30-pin connector on the other.

    Users have been able to attach a USB hard drive to iOS devices since Apple released the Camera Connection Kit last year, but i-FlashDrive seems to have an even easier route for moving files quickly to and from iOS devices. A free app store app accompanies the purchase of the memory dongle, that allows for both external and internal file management. The app will allow users to manage many file types, including photos, movies, and music - with native MP3 playback within the app. That's some pretty big news.

    The device is set for a mid-to-late June launch, unfortunately for us stateside users, only in Korea, but PhotoFast insures that there will be a U.S. launch not long after the initial release this month. The i-FlashDrive drive will come in three sizes- ranging from 8 GB ($95) to 32 GB ($180).

    For more information, check out the PhotoFast website, or the review of the soon-to-be-released product on Engadget.

    180 dollars for 32 gb? No way. I could get a 120 gb SSD for that much.

    That price is a bit steep for that amount of memory. It's about twice what I would expect it to cost. Pass.

    Nice! But I hope those prices will downsize once it comes state side. Still I want one. Not paying that much though. Nope.

    lame. Id rather have an Android device that uses SD cards that cost around $50 and not big and clunky like this device.

    First, if there are 12 replies in this thread, why is it that only one is seen?

    I posted in this thread earlier, but don't see it posted anywhere, that the price of this item seems to be about twice as much as I would expect or be willing to pay.

    Edit - the only way I was able to see any more than just the first post of this thread was to go through viewing all new posts, and then click on this thread in that list. Clicking on this thread from the home page produces noting more than the article and the first post. And you can't get to any other posts.

    $95/$180 for 8/32 GB?!! Holy rip off! For that money, the least they could have done was make it look nice.

    Overpriced rape of iDevice owners. We only do that for the devices, not the devices that hook to the devices.

    Who would need this outdated technology anymore? Now that we have iCloud on ios5, this would be useless and a waste of money.
