Consumer electronics are gaining the ability to sustain communication with several other devices at once, but this isn't a common trait yet, even among smartphones and tablets.
That doesn't mean other items can't provide that sort of functionality though. In fact, Silicon Power
has just introduced a storage unit that can behave as a sharing hub for any Wi-Fi-connected device.
The company chose to name it Sky Share H10, thanks to its capability to handle up to 8 different devices at once, through the built-in 2T2R antenna.
Performing such communications and accessing the internet at the same time is perfectly within specifications as well.
Furthermore, the 2600mA/h Lithium battery can last for up to five hours of multimedia streaming (to a single device).
As for the design, the Sky Share H10 has the regular rectangle shape, but also a ripple pattern around the power switch. It was apparently enough to earn it the Golden Pin Design Mark 2012 and Tom's HardwareBest of Computex 2012.
Silicon Power didn't give a price, unfortunately.
