Mass Storage For Phones

The Demo conference started today, and the first news out of it comes
from Seagate, which will be introducing pocket-sized, 20-GB,
Bluetooth-equipped drives for cellphones this summer. They call this
tech "DAVE" (one wonders whether the acronym or the expansion came
first). Quoting: 

"DAVE-based products will be about the size of a credit card and less
than half and inch thick, with an operating range of up to 30 feet
from the connected phone... Software to hook the drives up to
cellphones has already been produced for J2ME, BREW, Windows Mobile,
Symbian and XCCC. Palm compatibility is forthcoming. The platform is
open source..."
