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.
