Last month we got a first butchers at Agere Systems' BluOnyx mobile servers. Now Seagate, never one to let a minnow swim by unchecked, has fished out a gizmo of its own.It's teamed up with Orange to launch its 10 to 20GB mobile server called, er, DAVE, which sounds more exciting when you string it out to Digital Audio Video Experience.At least, it would if it hadn’t teamed up with Orange Business. Instead of being billed as a way to stream a disk full of video, music and photos to nearby mobiles via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (a la BluOnyx) this box is being touted as a way to carry a computer's worth of data without packing a laptop. Still, we won't tell the boss if you sneak the new Arcade Fire album or an episode of Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace on there.At least it'll slip nicely into those city boy shirt pockets; coming in at roughly the same size as a centimetre high stack of credit cards. Hey, when you've got a credit rating like ours...Unfortunately – as they say about all the best compilation albums – you can't buy it the shops. Orange has signed it up as an exclusive, and you can expect to see it being offered on the Orange Business website later this year.
Meet DAVE – your friendly mobile server
