Seagate To Participate In GITEX Shopper

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Seagate Technology, the Middle East Retail Storage Vendor of the Year 2011, will showcase its award winning range of external storage solutions for home and small business at GITEX Shopper™, 8-15 October, Airport Expo Dubai. Taking centre stage will be two of the company’s latest offerings; GoFlex Satellite™ mobile wireless storage and the 4TB GoFlex® Desk external hard drive, the world’s highest capacity hard drive. Seagate's stand number is WH1-1 in the West Hall.

Available in the Middle East since August, the GoFlex Satellite drive is the first battery-powered external hard drive to wirelessly extend the storage capacity of iPads, other tablet computers and smartphones. With 500GB, the GoFlex Satellite wireless storage device provides the ability to carry an entire library of video, music, pictures and documents with you. Devices are wirelessly connected directly to the GoFlex Satellite drive by use of the free GoFlex Media™ app for iPad or Android, or via a web browser.

The 4TB GoFlex Desk external storage solution, which features Seagate’s new streamlined industrial design, has the space to contain over 2,000 HD movies. This new GoFlex Desk external drive comes at a time when people are archiving more of their memories in the form of digital photo and video. It will be available in the region later in the year.

  • GoFlex Slim drive, the world’s thinnest portable external hard drive that’s perfect for pairing with netbooks, notebooks and other portable devices
