Imagine being able to share your videos, music and photos from any external hard drive or thumb drive to any iPad, iPhone or Android in your home.

If you want to take the Mobile Companion on the road with you, it works as a great travel router/access point, so you can get instant wireless from any hotel or conference room where a network already exists. While you’re out and about, the Mobile Companion can also charge your iPhone or Android smartphone – and it even comes in its own traveling case.

The D-Link router DIR-505 comes with one Ethernet port to connect to an Internet source, such as a broadband modem or a network port of a hotel. As a wireless router, it features single stream wireless-N standard (capping at 150Mbps), a Wi-Fi Protected Setup button for fast network setup, and SharePort Cloud for sharing data via the Internet. When not used with an external hard drive, its USB port can also be used to charge a mobile device, such as an iPhone or iPad.
Considering its tiny size, the DIR-505 makes a good device that you want to stick somewhere inside your backpack or a car’s glove compartment for use when needed. It definitely doesn’t take much space at all.
D-Link says the new All-in-One Mobile Companion DIR-505 will be available in April for around $75.
