At the CES 2013 Sony has announced its Personal Content Station that is using NFC technology to pair with Android devices.
The device has been given an April release date and the expected price is around $300.
The storage station will include a 1TB drive which is NFC compatible to enable simple and quick pairing with Android tablets and smartphones, requiring only an application that manages backups via WiFi.
Sony will also support devices that are not compatible with NFC technology like the Sony camera or the iPhone by using USB, WiFi or an SD card to transfer data.
Other features include a transcoder to create mobile mp4 video versions from Advanced Video Coding High Definition files and also has an HDMI port.
