zoomIt adds storage to iPhone, ugly style

Extra storage for the iPhone is ugly

One of the big issues that many have with Apple is that the company keeps its products so locked down. While most smartphones have microSD card slots for expanding storage capacity, the iPhone lacks the feature. Once you run out of storage on the device the only option you have is to delete something.




A new device called zoomIt has turned up that connects to the iPhone via its 30-pin connector. The device has a built-in SD card slot for extra storage space. Accessing items stored on the zoomIt device has to be done through the zoomIt app though.


The idea is that you can also use the zoomIt to upload pictures to the iPhone directly from your camera. The device will work with the iPhone and iPod touch and will ship in April for $59.95. Too bad the thing is so big and ugly, it's an interesting bit of tech.
