Lenovo Beacon Personal Cloud Storage hands-on

IMG_1100 Lenovo Beacon offers a more personal solution versus “in the air” cloud storage services. Files reside inside Beacon, and the device stays fixed in a physical location in the home. It offers large storage capacity easily expandable up to 6TB, and there are no monthly fees for data storage. Outside file transfer to one’s mobile device occurs seamlessly from Beacon. Beacon runs an Intel® Atom™ dual core processor, supports file transfer through 3G4, WiFi and Ethernet and comes in white or black.
