Thought the 32GB or 64GB of internal flash storage was never enough? Well, Seagate might have just announced something that will surprise you - the Seagate Ultra Mobile. This is the industry's first purpose-built 500GB storage solution for Android-based devices.




This means that consumers can take around countless hours of music or video, or tens of thousands of images everywhere they go. Seagate has used a Dynamic Data Driver that "intelligently manages the data between the devices' on-board flash and the HDD to provide comparable power and performance of flash-only solutions."




Seagate has also used zero-gravity sensors (ZGS) that will protect the device if it's dropped, as well as improved shock and tolerance for gyroscopic motion supports even when the device is being moved around quickly when you're playing games. This all comes in at just 3.3 oz, which is about the weight of a light bulb. It's built on the 2.5-inch standard, and is just 5mm thick. Power consumption is ultra-low at just 0.14W in standby or idle.


We have this storage built on the SATA 6Gb/s standard, with 16MB of cache. The Seagate Ultra Mobile looks to be the perfect companion for detachable storage on your mobile devices, and you can be sure to see a review from us soon.
