Elan is launching an adapter that allows an external USB hard drive to be plugged into a cellphone’s micro-SD slot.

Once connected using the Mobidapter, files can be transferred and backups made without the need for a PC.

The connector can be used on any mobile/cell phone, smartPhone or PDA with external SD socket.

It works in all operating systems and no drivers are required.

UK-based Elan said the Mobidapter will be shipping from mid-June 2009. No price is currently available.
