* BT-enabled Hard Drive to connect to any BT-enabled Smartphone or WM2003 PDA - 20Gb. Battery operated, matchbox size.
* Also doubles up as a stand-alone MP3 player.
* Acts as mass memory storage, showing up as a storage card on your device
* Includes software to replace/enhance Activesync
* Enables synchronisation of ALL Outlook data, all email sub-folders, all attachments (within the limits of 20Gb available).
PC module - allows shared files to be selected, records file changes made, updates by overwriting changed files in direction of PC or direction of device (you select).
Device module - synchronises Outlook entries (Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Favorites, Notes). Allows all files on the HDD to be accessed, change & moved. Allows all PC email accounts to be viewed/replied to via a 'virtual account' interface (similar to the default 'Activesync' one).
The nominal 1Mb/sec bandwidth of bluetooth means that transfers of large files is going to be slow, but the HDD will have a USB cable when connected to the PC. Synchronisation is really eliminated by this idea, as you simply carry around the data with you - the HDD can even stay in the bottom of your briefcase or deep in your pocket. No synchronisation means no file version conflicts, no deletion of data by error, no duplicate files. If you have both a Smartphone and a PDA, you can read the same data on both devices. In fact you can access the data on any number of BT-enabled devices without limit.
Interesting? -....... or plain crazy?
