Western Digital has launched a new external hard drive, the My Passport Wireless Pro which makes it even easier to back up photos snapped on your digital camera as soon as you've taken without the need for a computer or cables.


The My Passport Wireless Pro has wifi so you can connect a camera that also has wifi and wirelessly transfer your pictures to the hard drive  and with a 10 hour battery life, it should last no matter how long you take capturing pictures. Alternatively if your camera doesn't have a direct WiFi connection, the built in SD card reader means you can still back up your pictures to the hard drive without the need for a computer or cables.
