Tiny Hard Drive Packs A Big Punch
BBC: Tiny Hard Drive Packs A Big Punch
Toshiba has developed a tiny hard drive which measures less than an inch across but can hold between two and four gigabytes of data.
The drive, about the size of a £1 coin, was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The hard drive has emerged as one of the key components in the push to bring computing technologies to the home.
Toshiba says it is the first company to break the one inch barrier with its new drive.
"Our new miniature drive is a significant technological breakthrough," said Nick Spittle of Toshiba Storage Device Division Europe.
