Hyperdrive iUSBportHD for iOS, Android
Compared to most laptops, tablets don't offer a lot of storage. It's shockingly easy to fill up 16GB, 32GB or even 64GB, with apps, photos and video. One possible solution: A portable hard drive for your tablet, such as Hyperdrive’s iUSBportHD ($160 to $300). The drive creates its own Wi-Fi connection to your iOS, Android or other Wi-Fi-connected device; it features a USB host port for connecting a second hard drive and a SDXC card expansion slot; and it can stream up to five HD movies to five devices, according to the company. It comes with free iOS and Android apps for file transfer and management. Hyperdrive also offers a family of additional iUSBport products.
