Seagate Technology has announced a 12 GB 1-inch hard drive.
With a footprint 23 percent smaller, 50 percent more Storage capacity, and 30 percent less power consumption than the company’s current 1-inch hard drive, the ST1.3 Series will also offer a new optional drop sensor, allowing it to survive a 1.5-meter drop onto hard concrete or ceramic surfaces when properly mounted in a handheld device.
This will be Seagate’s second hard drive with perpendicular recording and the company’s first drive utilizing perpendicular technology in the 1-inch category.
The Seagate ST1.3 Series will begin shipping in the third quarter of 2006.
