Remember Infinitec? Tricky question, no? The company came to us at CES 2010 with a product that had big — nay, huge — aspirations. It was a simple USB stick that promised to enable ad hoc streaming, claiming to bring “infinite storage” to PC users. Unfortunately, it wasn’t exactly seamless in operation, and the company’s been radio silent ever since. Until today. The Dubai-based outfit is officially getting back in the consumer technology game starting right now, and as it seems that all the cool kids are doing these days, it’s going the Kickstarter route in lieu of more conventional capital raising.
The new product is an Android-based HDMI dongle — not entirely unlike a few others we’ve seen — which is being dubbed Pocket TV. Just as Tim Cook stated last night at D10, the TV industry is an interesting one, and it’s obvious that people want something different than they have today. Plug this guy into your television, and you’ll be able to Skype from the big screen, show PowerPoint presentations without a laptop connection and tap into files you’ve got hosted on Dropbox (or any other cloud-based Android app). Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is onboard, and it’ll ship with a gyro-equipped keyboard remote that allows control via one’s hand motions. Thinking of giving these guys another shot? Hit that source link below and put your money ($ 99 or more) where your mouse is.

We’re guessing that the past six months have dragged on (or zipped by, depending on viewpoint) for the folks at Infinitec as they waited for this day, but the device we first spotted at the Engadget trailer during CES 2010 is finally up for pre-order. Hailed as the world’s first “infinite USB flash drive,” this ad hoc streaming device enables any two locally networked devices to send content to one another, and as of today, those who have longed for just this thing can get in line. The startup’s also taking this opportunity to gloat about the “dual-WiFi” capabilities included (a video explanation awaits you past the break), which essentially enables an IUM-equipped laptop to connect to another device while retaining its live connection to the web. Hit the source link to part ways with your $129, and if you buy in early, you’ll be gifted with gratis worldwide shipping come August 31st. And you can’t beat that deal with a stick, USB or otherwise.
