Thecus's N0204 miniNAS is world's smallest, apparently

We track a lot of things claiming to be the smallest or thinnest this-or-that, but, when it comes to network-attached storage, we can't say as we've been breaking out our rulers all that often. So, when Thecus says its N0204 miniNAS is the world's smallest, we'll take them for their word. Little bigger than an external 3.5-inch drive enclosure, the N0204 actually sports room for two 2.5-inch drives, serving them up concatenated or in RAID 0 or 1 configurations. Despite its size it still offers the same functionality of many of the bigger boys, including the ability to act as an iTunes or DLNA server, print server, and webcam host. It even allows hot-swapping. Apparently the only thing it can't do is tell you when it'll release or how much it'll cost when it does. For that we'll just have to wait and see.
