BluOnyx Mobile Content Server – Wi-Fi storage for your mobile phone or media player

Mobile phones, MP3 players

Agere Systems has introduced the BluOnyx Mobile Content Server, a storage solution for your mobile phone or media player when card capacity just isn’t enough.

The BluOnyx is the size of a credit card and thinner than a Blackberry. It can transfer or stream music, video, pictures, business files to or from mobile phones, digital cameras, digital camcorders, PCs or to and from any site on the internet (such as YouTube or MySpace), accessing the web via Wi-Fi connection.

It has its own rechargeable battery, which lasts up to 12 hours and is available with strage levels from 1GB to 40GB. There’s no screen – all control is via your mobile phone, PC or screen. Any media file can be hosted, even DRM files, as long as the playback device has the decoding capability. And as it’s Wi-Fi-enabled, the BluOnyx offers net access for mobiles and PDAs that aren’t broadband-enabled.

The retail price of the BluOnyx is expected to range from £50 to £130 depending on memory capacity.
