"EMC subsidiary Iomega is readying a WiFi-enabled, Linux-based network-attached storage (NAS) device that costs $100. The Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station has no storage of its own, but acts as a wireless hub that shares data stored on devices hooked up to its four USB 2.0 ports.

"The iConnect Wireless Data Station is built around an unnamed 1GHz CPU with 256MB RAM. Equipped with 802.11b/g/n WiFi, the device offers a gigabit Ethernet port and four USB 2.0 ports.

"The iConnect runs on 100-240 VAC AC voltage, and consumes about five Watts, says Iomega. The device is also said to offer a front panel "QuikTransfer" button for copying selected files directly between networked storage devices or with an attached Windows, Mac, or Linux PC."
