I normally don’t post computer hardware related things over here on Mobility Digest but this one I think might be of interest to mobile users. Thermaltake has just announced the BlacX Urban which is a wi-fi enabled hard drive docking station. The dock can use 3.5” or 2.5” hard drives or SSDs and it’s wi-fi enabled for access to the storage over your network. Thermaltake has even come out with iOS and Android apps but it uses regular UPnP as well. The BlacX Urban also has a USB 3.0 port for regular style transfers. I don’t see a price listed and I checked Amazon and it’s not there yet so not sure on availability or pricing.
