iPhone accidents are common, people drop their iPhones or lose it or something bad happens to it and then all the important contacts and photos and data is lost. And then you mop about not saving or backing up your iPhone when iTunes was asking you a million times or the times when you thought you should.
Now though you don’t have to worry about those accidents, thanks to this new iPhone dock that backs up your contacts and photos while charging. Built by the manufacturer Iomega, it’s called the SuperHero iPhone Dock and has it’s own superhero emblem.
It indeed is a Superhero, thanks to how it backs up your important data and saves the day. The Iomega SuperHero dock uses a SD card to store the backed up data, but unfortunately doesn’t store music, videos or anything else than photos and contacts.
When you connect your iPhone, the app switches on automatically and asks you if you want to backup or not. There aren’t many options that you can play with, but you can select what you want to save as long as they are contacts and photos. Watch the video below to see how it works:
The SuperHero dock is compatible with iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G, also works with the iPod Touch 3rd gen and above. The dock will go an sale this month for about $69 and a 4GB SD card will be provided with it. It will be shown in the coming up Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Would you rather buy the SuperHero Dock or just plug it onto the computer and sync everytime?
