Asustek Computer has plans to launch a WiFi based external HDD this coming May. The WL-HDD will give network users access to files via an 802.11g 54Mbit/s wireless HDD. Its also backwards compatible with 802.11b devices and can be adopted easily in wired environments.
Although WiFi is booming, wireless hard-drives have failed in the past, the Sony FSV-PGX1 was a 20GB WiFi HDD, the first ever on the market. It was capable of supporting 250 network connections over CIFS, NFS or Unix/Linux.
