Seagate expects that tablet storage will change this year, with a normal hard disk drive instead of NAND flash being the storage found inside some tablets that will arrive on shelves later this year.
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."
