As mentioned the other day, Seagate have recently announced that they plan to have 3.5" desktop hard drives on the market with massive capacities of up to 2.5TB by sometime 2009. In addition to that, HKEPC also make light of Seagate's plans to release notebook hard drives of a whopping 500GBs by this time too.

Seagate Technology (NYSE: STX) today announced the results of a magnetic recording demonstration, setting a world record of 421 Gbits per square inch (421 Gbit/in2). The demonstration used perpendicular recording heads and media created with currently available production equipment that validates Seagate's ability to scale the technology for the foreseeable future without major technology changes or capital additions. Dr. Mark Kryder of Seagate unveiled the findings during his keynote presentation at the IDEMA DISKCON show in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the hard drive.
