The iPhone may be a master of pint-sized multimedia, but it doesn’t exactly allow you to take all of your audio, video and photos with you.

Now Buffalo Technology has announced that its LinkStation Mini will be compatible with Apple’s popular portable. What that means is that users of both will be able to stream tons of digital content while on the go, via a web browser.

The LinkStation Mini can hold up to 1TB of music, photos, videos and other files—and it’s small enough to fit in your hand. Other highlights include a dual drive RAID 1 configuration, a DLNA server by TwonkyVision, a fan-less design, and a remote power feature.

“With digital media becoming such an integral part of our daily lives, consumers are looking for a simple and convenient way to enjoy recently purchased music, movies or TV programming anytime, anywhere,” said Ken Higgins, Buffalo’s VP of sales. “Buffalo’s new Web Access capability allows users to enjoy their digital life wherever they are, rather than tuck it away on a computer, NAS or USB hard drive.”

The LinkStation Mini sells for $299 (500GB) and $599 (1TB). The iPhone capability was just announced today. Existing LinkStation Mini users can download the feature via a firmware upgrade.
