Iomega Intros SuperHero iPhone Backup

Today Iomega introduced a novel iPhone dock with charging and backup capabilities. The Iomega SuperHero looks like a standard iPhone dock with a brushed metal look so it will look good next to your Mac or standing alone. The SuperHero is a charger for the iPhone that also backs up important info between syncing sessions.

We all know that you should sync your iPhone to make sure you have a backup of your contacts and photos. However, that isn’t always an option, especially when your Mac or PC is at home (or in the office, or your parent’s house, etc.) The SuperHero can backup your photos and contacts every time you charge the iPhone, which is a daily occurrence for most users. The SuperHero can support multiple iPhones, with its included 4GB SD card, but you can upgrade that card yourself if you need more space. 4GB should be enough for many iPhones, at least right out of the box. The SuperHero doesn’t backup iTunes music and videos, since those may be DRM protected on your computer. Your music and videos should be backed up in your iTunes library in any case.

The SuperHero works with Iomega’s SuperHero iOS app, which is available free from the iTunes app store. Backup, naming (for multiple iPhone support), and restore are all handled by the SuperHero app automatically after an initial setup. Backups after the initial setup are incremental, saving time over full backups. If you lose your iPhone or have to reformat it, you can use the SuperHero app to restore your photos and contacts from the backup.

The Iomega SuperHero is now available for a MSRP of $69.99. The SuperHero is compatible with the Apple iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3G. The SuperHero will also work with the Apple iPod Touch (third and fourth generations). The SuperHero has a 3-year limited warranty.
