HP announced today at CES 2013 the HP Pocket Playlist, a 32GB wireless pocket drive that comes with a built-in battery and Wireless-N access point.
The Pocket Playlist can stream unencrypted content, be it movies, music, TV shows, or photos, to up to five mobile devices at the same time.
The device is very compact; in fact it's about the same size but much lighter than the iPhone 4. While 32GB is relatively limited, that's enough to hold around 16 full-length movies, 8,000 songs, or 10,000 photos. It comes with mobile apps for Android, Windows, and iOS devices.
I just had a brief time with the device but it seems to have lots of potential. It will be available for purchase on January 15 for $129. Check back then for a full review.
