Storage Appliance unveils two new transformers

Allows users to backup their computer’s digital content onto the extra storage space of iPhone or iPod

By CBR Staff Writer

Storage Appliance, a developer of Clickfree automatic backup products, has introduced two new products by launching the Clickfree transformer for iPhone and iPod and the Special Edition model, the Transformer SE.

The company claimed that the new transformers allow consumers to backup their computer’s digital content onto the excess storage space on their iPhone or iPod. They can also be used to transfer music from any iPod or iPhone to a Windows or Mac-based computer.

The company said that the there is no software required for installation or setup. The excess capacity of users’ iPhone or iPod will be used, and existing content on iPod or iPhone will not be overwritten.

The new transformers will also allow customers to retrieve music collections back off their iPhone or iPod. Instead of orphaning the content, the new transformer allows users to retrieve their content, the company said.

Bryan McLeod, CEO of Storage Appliance, said: From students to seniors, almost everyone owns an iPhone or an iPod these days, so why not make more use of the unused memory on these devices? My 80GB iPod has 40GB of music and photos – it still has over 40GB of unused storage. Now I can maximise the extra storage by backing up my work and home computers. These Transformers are an inexpensive way to effortlessly backup your computers using devices you already own.

The Transformer for iPhone/iPod is available now and the Transformer SE will be available next month.
