QGenie offers an internal 32GB SSD
QNAP is extended its Network Attached Storage (NAS) prowess to a portable “mobile” form-factor with its new QGenie, which it calls a 7-in-1 mobile device.
Similar in concept to products from companies like
, the QGenie not only allows users to share documents and media files wirelessly, but it also can serve as a wireless access point, provide juice for your mobile device on -the-go thanks to its built-in 3000 mAh battery, and act as an external 32GB SSD when plugged into your computer’s USB 3.0 port. While operating as an external drive, the QGenie offers read speeds of 120MB/s and write speeds of 40MB/s.
Other features include a built-in LAN port, SD card slot, and an OLED that displays battery status, wireless activity, and current storage capacity. The QGenie also supports Qsyc, the Qfile mobile app, and QNAP’s myQNAPcloud service.
The QGenie supports Windows and Mac computers, and has mobile apps available for both iOS and Android. Users of the Windows Phone or BlackBerry 10 operating systems are unfortunately left out of the loop.
QNAP says that the QGenie is available now with an MSRP of $129.

Furthermore, you can get this thing for $45
Slap a 64GB SD card in there and you have twice the storage, almost 3x the battery life, and half the cost.

There's also plenty of external drive cases that you could adapt to connect to a phone or tablet's micro-USB or micro-SDHC ports, in which you could place the SSD of your choice. Not as convenient as a NAS storage, since you're not going to be able to handle multiple connections, but still plenty of capacity.
I recently put a 120GB SSD into a USB 2.0 external hard drive case I had laying around, and with the micro-USB (male) to USB (female) adapter ($4 at Amazon) that I have, I have now increased the storage capacity for my tablet by 111MB (after formatting). My cost was ~$80.
