How cool is that? During CES 2017, a quite cool solution showed up. It is a device with Samsung PCIe NVMe Device inside (capacity up to 2 Tb) which provides Bluetooth and Wifi connections out-of-the-box. It is a company called Facetto which is a file sharing and messaging provider, which came up with the idea. The hardware is powered by Linux-driven Exynos 7 Octa 7420 CPU and can create an LTE hotspot as well as provides a very fast storage for the surrounding environment. Imagine this as a Hi-speed Wi-fi NAS unit which fits in your pocket, as your Personal 2Tb Cloud On-The-Go by Facetto!
It is an ultra-portable, always-available device accessible via dedicated broadcast Wi-Fi (5GHz and 2.4Ghz), Bluetooth 4LE, cellular 4G LTE and USB-C connections (no RJ45..). Link is waterproof (important while on the road or while traveling). Personally, having 2Tb in the palm of my hand is still something….
BTW, they received a CES 2017 Innovation Award, and in 4 categories (Wireless Handset Accessories, Computer Hardware and Components, Software and Mobile Apps).
You can easily use it as a backup target of all your data, and your wife's, daughter's (and dog's) too. It is kind of an ultimate hub which allows multiple users to access files/folders no matter from which platform they're connecting from. It's kind of a “shared family storage” while on the go. You can save photos, videos directly to Link.
