iPhone Backup Drives Make Reformatting Mobile Devices a Lot Easier

Reformatting a cell phone is just as much of a nuisance as a computer, which makes one wonder why the idea for iPhone backup drives didn't pop up sooner. Softbank, a leading telecommunications company in Japan, has developed a lightweight palm-sized iPhone backup drive that easily stores data from cell phones, making it significantly easier to re-install all those apps and files.

The Wireless Memory Reader & Writer weighs as little as 53 grams and is compatible with most Apple devices such as the newer iPhone 4, 4S, 5 and the new iPads, though Softbank does have plans to expand the reach and make this device compatible with Androids and other smartphones as well. The Wireless Memory Reader & Writer can also be used as an external hard drive for laptops as well.
