Acer has just torn the wrappers off Clear.fi, a media sharing system linking several devices with a common interface.

What does that mean exactly? Well, Acer reckons we struggle to enjoy all the movies, pictures and music we own and create across multiple devices, so they’ve developed Clear.fi to make things easier.

Basically everything is centred around the Revo storage device. Coming with 1.5TB of space (and upgradeable to 6TB), this little box can record TV and play back any media stowed away on it via HDMI. You can browse the files on any connected devices, and there’s a QWERTY keyboard and wireless remote for controlling duties.

The concept is essentially to link all your media tech kit: take a photo on your smartphone and when you get home, it’ll be available straight away on your laptop or HDTV. Edit a video on your PC and you can watch it back on your TV straight away.

Compatible devices will share the same interface, so all will display content in the same way. Acer revealed the Stream smartphone, as well as the LumiRead ebook reader as a couple of such devices.

The LumiRead packs a 6-inch screen and 2GB of built-in memory (plus a microSD slot), as well as Wi-Fi for downloading books (from Barnes & Noble in the US). But because it’s also Clear.fi compatible you can drag and drop books onto it from your desktop.

No word on UK launch dates or pricing just yet.
