The amount of data that you can store on a tablet or smartphone is very limited and even a 32GB flash memory card can get filled up in an instant with today's HD videos, 720p recordings and 8MP to 13MP pictures. Why buy a more expensive smartphone or tablet just so you can get more memory when you can simply buy an external hard disk drive? Well, this is because most external hard disk drives don't connect well to a smartphone or tablet. Unlike most external hard disk drives, the recently released 1TB Seagate Wireless Plus is an external hard disk drive that provides wireless connectivity, without requiring a wireless router.
