Dubai-Based Infinitec Launches The Infinite USB Memory (IUM) Drive
Some of the fruits of hosting multinational companies in the Arab world is being realized today, Ahmad Zaharan a Palestinian ex-Nokia and his ex- Nokia Australian college , David McKern, launched today their startup infinitec’s first product today: Infinite USB Memory (IUM) Drive.
As you see in the pic IUM looks like any USB, but instead of storing data inside the stick it uses any thing that has a USB port as the storage space, enabling “infinite” data sharing ( videos, photos, doc..etc) using WIFI network meaning the device act as wireless connector between a personal computer and anything that is USB-enabled.
IUM solves tones of existing problems, today for example we tried to share a bunch of data with a colluege, fortunately I had enough space on my USB drive, but if I did not have enough space I’d have to free some space. IUM can also help you do a lot with its sharing capabilities including: watching your DVD, Blu-ray in our TV from your PC or DVD player, and connect your laptop to projectors effortlessly ( more about other uses of IUM can be found here.)
The device will cost less than US$150 and will be available around 1st July 2010 with selected dealers online stores and retail stores across USA, Canada, Europe and the Arab world.
Zahran was quoted at the UAE based the National, that his startup infinitec is backed by his own savings and he also said that he is positive about the device success, we hope so too.
