Toshiba Unveils 1.8-Inch 60GB Drive

By Derek Sooman on
Digital music players, subnotebooks and other devices that require very small hard drives will get a welcome boost in the near future, when Toshiba releases a 1.8-Inch 60GB drive.

Advancements in thin-film technology (used in both the head and platter) are to thank for this boost in capacity for such small drives. This should make it possible for a two-platter drive to hold up to 60GB of data (versus today's 40GB).

Its always nice to see that portable music players can be made to hold more, and that companies like Toshiba continue to innovate and invent.
