First of its kind

| Posted: Jul 26, 2007 11:53 pm

The folks over at Techpowerup have spotted something very interesting posted up on japanese website "acsii.jp". It's a 1.8" HDD which resembles that of a cell phone, it's designed to fit into a notebook's PCMCIA slot and supports the Cardbus 2.1 interface.

 

The HD32F will work in a multitude of OSs including Windows Vista/XP/2000 and even Mac OS X 10.1. It will be offered in two capacities, 20GB and 40GB. Pricing is said to be around $125 and $230 respectively.

 

The thing which caught my attention most about it though is its data transfer rate, reported to be around 1056 Mbps!

 

Details here folks.
