Verbatim has introduced its new MediaShare Mini NAS server. Unlike most network-attached storage devices, this product doesn't include any storage out of the box—the user is responsible for connecting external hard drives or thumb drives to the four included USB ports. As the picture below illustrates, Verbatim took the Mini part of the product name to heart, as well, making other NAS solutions look totally fat in those pants.
Diminutive size aside, the device offers the ability to stream files through a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or "other DLNA compliant digital media adaptors," and files stored on it can be accessed from an iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android smart phone. You can also upload photos directly to Facebook and Flickr, though it appears the Flickr integration requires a premium subscription.
According to CNet News' Crave blog, the MediaShare Mini costs $90. At that price, it might appeal to those looking for a cheap, consumer-level NAS, especially if they already have a spare hard drive to pair with it.
