QNAP has announces its smallest device and it’s not something you’d expect from QNAP. The QNAP QGenie’s 7-in-1 feature set makes it a tough device to classify, though the company is calling it a mobile NAS. It can be NAS storage via wireless or the LAN port, direct storage to computer via USB 3.0, Mobile Satellite for your home NAS, personal cloud device, backup for your cellphone address book, a media server for your car, a 3,000mAh power bank, and it’s also a wireless access point. The QGenie comes with 32GB of SSD storage to make for ultra fast read/write times. The QGenie uses QNAP’s the QFile Mobile app for iOS and Android and Qsync for Mac and Windows for connection to your devices.
The QGenie is now available through QNAP’s dealer network. Check out the press release below and QNAP’s website.
QNAP Launches 7-in-1 Mobile NAS QGenie for File Storage, Power Bank, Internet Sharing, and More
Taipei, Taiwan, July 14, 2014 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the release of QGenie, a pocket-sized 7-in-1 mobile NAS for file storage, power bank, Internet sharing, and more. With its compact design, QGenie fits perfectly in the pocket yet provides powerful functions to meet users’ day-to-day mobile needs.
QGenie offers a great mobile NAS solution to wirelessly and flexibly extend the storage space of mobile devices. Users can optimize their storage space by transferring files to QGenie when they need to make room for more photos, music, and apps. Users can enjoy the utmost convenience by using the myQNAPcloud service, Qsync, and Qfile mobile app, to create a personal cloud to save, access, sync, and share all the files stored on QGenie on the go.
“QGenie allows connections from up to 20 users, enables simultaneous file access by up to 8 users, and is perfect for sharing multimedia when traveling in a vehicle and large files in various occasions such as social gatherings, class seminars, and business meetings without the need of sending emails or exchanging USB drives,” said Hanz Sung, product manager of QNAP.
QGenie also allows users to back up and retrieve their phonebooks from Android™ and iOS® devices by using Qfile mobile app, protecting their important data from loss. It is also perfect for saving users from manually entering all the names and numbers of their contacts into new phones.
With a built-in 3000mAh power capacity, a fully-charged QGenie can work for more than 10 hours, more than enough for an average day’s usage. QGenie can also act as a power bank for charging mobile devices with advanced circuit protection mechanisms, and provides a wireless access point (AP) for sharing Internet access with multiple devices through wired or Wi-Fi connections, smartphone hotspot, or an LTE/4G/3G dongle.
When connected to a PC or Mac via USB 3.0, QGenie automatically turns into a high-performance portable SSD for extremely fast file transfer of up to 120MB/s read and 40MB/s write speeds.
QGenie can also work with the Turbo NAS as a satellite device. Users can copy files from the Turbo NAS to QGenie or the other way around with the USB one-touch-copy function, and enjoy easier access to all files via the Qfile mobile app. The OLED display shows a clear view of the current system status, including storage capacity, battery power, wireless connections, and more, providing an enhanced user experience.
