Fujitsu are set to break new ground in the storage industry come the first quarter of next yr with the world's first 2.5" hard drives with huge capacities of 250GB and 300GB in size, this of course only achieveable by means of perendicular recording technology.

Sunnyvale (CA) - If you considered the impact of perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) on hard drives, as rather negligible so Fujitsu's announcement this morning may change your opinion: The company said it will begin shipping monstrous 250 GB and 300 GB notebook hard drives in the first quarter of 2007.
PMR has been around for more than a year, but the actual products resulting from this technology can easily be considered to lag behind initial projections of the major hard drive manufacturers. Perhaps with the exception of Seagate's 750 GB 3.5" drive, capacities have not been expanded as quickly as some may have thought and it appears that the leading hard drive developers are waiting for the others to catch up, before new models will be rolled out.
