cross platform external storage recommendations?

I am looking for a solution to let my mobile apps access large storage volumes in a platform independant manner.

To sum it up:

  • the Surface tablet gives your applications access to external USB drives
  • Android tablets do provide a USB port, but won't let your apps access it to read/write data
  • iPads are completely closed.

I was thinking of using a wireless drive like the Seagate Wireless Plus:

and use it as local web server, even though I haven't yet been able to figure whether it could be done or not.

Has anyone done something similar, or another approach to suggest?
