PepperPad 3 Hands-On

HP today announced the release of the HP Media Vault, a network hard drive intended to store photos, music and video. The system will allow users to store and share media across a home network. There is no word on what sort of connectivity it’ll include, but I’m assuming it’s ethernet. It’ll come in 300GB and 500GB capacities for $379 and $549 respectively. If I’m reading the press release correctly, the only allows users to share across a home network.

Also announced today was the HP Pocket Media Drive. This wallet-sized USB external hard drive is available at 80GB for $149 and 120GB for $219. It can also dock within HP Pavilion PCs in the Pocket Media Drive bay. Perhaps this portable drive is HPs answer to sharing media not just on one’s home network.
