Mr. O'Malley said at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference this week: "There will be devices other than [Chromebooks with hard disk drives] that you will see - tablets - that have [hard] drives in. We really do believe there is an opportunity." The CFO of Seagate also chimed in, saying "We could penetrate with our 5mm [HDDs] into some of these tablets over the course of the year, and even leveraging the seven millimeter hybrid [hard drives] through that space as well."
