LAS VEGAS -- January 6, 2013

Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX) today announced the next evolution of the
company’s wireless storage category, Seagate^® Wireless Plus mobile device
storage at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. Designed to wirelessly stream
content for up to eight smartphones or tablets with enough space for up to 500
high-definition movies, this new wireless hard drive, will extend the limits
of today’s mobile lifestyle. The new Seagate Wireless Plus now also includes a
10-hour battery life to match that of most tablets and smart phones. With the
integrated 1TB drive you’ll have all you need to be entertained anywhere
including long road trips or flights – without an Internet connection.

Seagate Wireless Plus mobile device storage is accessed through the mobile
Seagate Media app for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire HD devices. The
Seagate Media app has been developed for all major mobile devices, including
Android, Kindle Fire HD, Apple iOS and will also work with just about any
device that can connect to a Wi-Fi network. Additionally, you can use Wireless
Plus to enjoy video, photos, music and even documents on the big screen via
Apple Airplay, DLNA or an app designed specifically for Samsung Smart TVs and
Blu-ray players.

Seagate created this new category of wireless storage devices in 2011 to
address consumers’ desire to enjoy more content than tablets and smartphones
can hold with their limited storage. A CES 2013 Best of Innovations Award
Winner, the new Seagate Wireless Plus includes a new option to save content
and files to the drive wirelessly through the new Seagate Media app. For the
first time, consumers will be able to enjoy capturing a great HD video on
their iPhone and then wirelessly uploading it, in full resolution, to Wireless
Plus with its 1TB of storage.

“Smartphones and tablets offer amazing new opportunities for Seagate to
provide new consumer storage solutions in an increasingly mobile world,” said
Scott Horn, vice president of marketing at Seagate. “Seagate developed the
concept of wireless storage to consumers with the freedom to enjoy their
documents, movies, photos and music anywhere in the world, especially when
they can’t connect to the Internet. Seagate Wireless Plus builds on the
success of our first-generation product and takes it even further.”

The new 1TB wireless drive comes with a removable SuperSpeed USB3.0 adapter
for quick loading of photos, video, music and even documents. Fill it up and
go, for true anywhere access of all your favorite entertainment or much needed
work-related files anywhere. Because the Wireless Plus creates its own Wi-Fi
network, there is no need to stream or download your content from the Internet
or to spend money on a data plan. Everything is with you, where you want it,
when you need it with a secure and wireless connection.

“Less than half of U.S. mobile phone users are highly satisfied with the
storage of their mobile phone, and almost 20% are dissatisfied with their
mobile storage capacity,” said Brett Sappington, Director of Research at Parks
Associates. “As consumption of video on smartphones and tablets continues to
grow, consumers will seek the best ways to get content to their mobile device
without eating up all of the data in their monthly service plan.”

Pricing and Availability:

Seagate Wireless Plus mobile storage is currently available from Amazon and, for an MSRP of $199.99.
