Iomega SuperHero Backup and Charger for iPhone

We’ve all been there: Your iPhone crashes, and you realize you’ve lost all your contacts and photos because you’re a little lazy about regularly synching your iPhone with iTunes. Never fear — it’s the SuperHero to the rescue! It automatically backs up contacts and photos on an iPhone (or multiple iPhones) every time you charge it. The device comes complete with a 4GB SD card that provides the storage in the docking station for iPhone contacts and camera roll pictures. (The SD card is upgradeable if you need more capacity.) You simply download the free SuperHero iPhone app from the Apple Store and you’re ready to go. After the initial backup, future backups only include incremental contacts and photos. Then, if you lose or damage your iPhone, you can restore contacts and photos to a new iPhone by docking it in the SuperHero dock and selecting the “restore” button. Fully compatible with the iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G, as well as the iPod Touch (fourth generation). $54.99. http://iomega.com/superhero-iphone-backup
