HyperDrive

So you’ve got the 64GB iPad, but that’s hardly enough to carry all your photos and music when on the go.  What’s an early adopter like you to do?  Simple, pick up a HyperDrive.  It’s a 3.2-inch touchscreen device that reads 12 memory card types and lets you transfer data back and forth to the iPad.

They start at $249 (no hard drive included) and go all the way up to $599 (750GB).  The $249 version is ‘casing only’, which means you’ll need to install your own 2.5-inch SATA hard drive.  They say the battery, which is some sort of generic Lithium-ion laptop battery, has a single charge life that will let you back up 250GB of data.

Keep in mind you can also transfer images, music and any files stored on a memory card to the HyperDrive.  So if you travel and take an ass load of photos this could be a great solution.  It also supports hard drive partitions for different format support, has a wide variety of options and in case you’re wondering it connects over USB 2.0.
