You know when you lose all your data on your phone, perhaps the most immediate reflex is to call Suicide Prevention hotline. If you have an iPhone, you’re in a little bit of luck because you can resort to iTunes to restore all your stuff. But if that hasn’t been backed up for a while…well…you’re sunk.
Iomega has a solution: the Iomega SuperHero Dock Backup and Charger for iPhone. It’s a compact base docking station where you can dock your iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and iTouch for a full charge. The real magic behind the SuperHero, though, is that a backup app will run automatically to back up its important information, including contacts and photos onto an 4GB SD card. Sweet.
The SD card, which is included, connects to the station via an SD slot and can be replaced with a larger one for more data space.
The backup application is called “Iomega SuperHero,” and it’s a free download from the Apple Store. It allows for both backing up and restoring information. You can tailor your backup needs, adjusting what you want to back up. You can also back up multiple phones as well as restore information to a new phone.
The Iomega SuperHero Dock Backup and Charger for iPhone and its iPhone app are available now for around $70.
