Wearable, Inc. has introduced its new AirStash wireless flash drive with built-in media server. Airstash is a small device featuring a USB port on one end and an SD/SDHC card slot on the other. Once a card is inserted, users can fill the card with media from their desktop or laptop PCs, and then use the AirStash’s built-in Wi-Fi media server to access the content from any Wi-Fi-capable device with a web browser. Notably, the device’s browser-based interface has been optimized for the iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad using HTML5, allowing Apple’s mobile devices to play and/or access any document, photo, audio, or video format supported by the iPhone OS. The AirStash is available now for $100.

Very cool device, your own media cloud in your pocket! Now I can easily double the capacity of my Touch. This one’s going on Santa’s list ...

So this has both a battery and Wifi in it?  How long does it’s battery last?  If no battery and just USB power, then is the point to serve media mainly to your iPhone and iPad instead of keeping it locally on the device?

@brianbobcat: It has both wi-fi and battery-power. The guys who saw it at CES described it as like having a Network Attached Storage server in your pocket.

I can’t wait to get one (assuming reviews are positive). Hopefully I’ll be able to use it to store videos so I can make room on the iPhone for my music collection.

I tried to free up space by storing rarely-used audio (comedy albums and audiobooks) on MobileMe’s iDisk but it’s slow and buggy. This should work much better.
