Seagate Introduces Portable Drive For Phones

Seagate today announced a new portable hard drive platform designed to provide additional storage for mobile phones. DAVE is slightly smaller than a RAZR and features a 10 or 20 GB hard drive, a USB port, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Seagate has created applications to wirelessly connect to the hard drive from Java, BREW, Windows Mobile and Symbian phones. Users could backup media from the phone to the drive, or pre-load the drive with movies and music to transfer to the phone for playback. The tiny drive should last for about 10 hours of use or 14 days of standby between charges. The 10 GB version will be available this summer for about $150.

Apple has revealed the iPhone 15 series, which moves to a USB-C connector and brings several key features from last year's Pro models to the more-affordable standard models. These include the pill-shaped sensor cutout in the display that Apple calls Dynamic Island, a brighter display that can reach 2000 nits, a 48 megapixel main camera, and the A16 Bionic processor chip.
Bluetooth security issues?
How would you turn on/off the bluetooth settings for the drive itself without it having it's own interface?
It seems to me that it would have to always be on and in discover mode.
Maybe it just comes that way untill you connect it for the first time and assign it a password from the remote device it's conecting to?
Any ideas/opinions anyone?
its a cool concept though
