Having an all-purpose connectivity device can help quite a bit when traveling, especially if you own a whole bunch of mobile devices like external HDDs/SSDs, phones, tablets and laptops.
D-link decided to build such a device, called DIR-505 SharePort All-In-One Mobile Companion.
It plugs into a wall power socket and immediately assumes the role of multi-mode wireless router/AP, Wi-Fi hotspot and repeater.
Not only that, but it even has an integrated Ethernet port and an USB connector.
Buyers can download the D-link SharePort app for free and use it to share digital content (music, videos, photos, etc.) between an external HDD/SSD/ flash drive and iOS / Android devices (slates/phones).
Sales should already be possible through online retailers. The price is $69.99, or 55.46 Euro, if exchange rates are anything to go by.
