No, it is not a mirage. Quite a lot of times, we have pointed out in various comparisons (iPad vs ZTE, ipad vs acer a500 and so on) that iPad lacks a USB port that prevents the users to access the external storage devices like flash drive. Well, we would not be able to make that excuse any more as a Taiwan-based company called Photofast has churned out an iPad accessory called i-Flashdrive that works just like a regular USB flash drive.
The data on the USB flash drive is read on the iPad by downloading the company’s app from the appstore and can be read onto any computer – be it a Mac, Windows or a Linux box. Another very exiting feature is that it does not requires you to jailbreak your iPad / iPad 2.
The app that is used to communicate and access the data on the i-Flash Drive does the triple duty too as it also works as a text editor and voice recorder. It comes in 8GB / 16GB / 32GB storage capacities for 100, 120 and 200 dollars respectively.
