    Is there any solution out there similar to he Seagate GoFlex satellite that utilizes BlueTooth instead of WiFi? Or one that has WiFi that can act as a router?

    Would be nice not to have to lose the connection to the internet to access videos/music/pictures.

    Great! Thanks I will have to read up on that! WiFi or BT.. either would be fine. Just would be nice to have access to the internet while browsing the movies/photos/music.

    I appreciate it!

    Hmmm, only thing is it requires AC Power. Not really portable.

    I agree on not being portable, but what is the point of having a portable wifi router+movie streaming device when you can't connect the Internet cable to it? No Internet cable = no Internet access. Simple as that. Even if some company decides to convert 3G data to Wifi, and make what you want, you'd still end up paying for monthly data usage.

    Yeah which is why I was wanting a BT type solution. I have means for the internet over 3G. However, would be nice to have access to a device such as this while having access to the photos/movies/music. Though may just deal with having to change between 3G and WiFi with a GoFlex.

    I want a mobile solution. I can already access all the movies and music I want from my home computers anyway.
