Toshiba introduces high-capacity 2.5-inch hard disk drives.

Toshiba's Storage Device Division (SDD), the industry pioneer in small form factor hard disk drives (HDDs), has announced an 80GB 2.5-inch hard disk drive. With an areal density of 64.8 gigabits per square inch and a super slim package measuring 9.5mm high, Toshiba's MK8025GAS hard disk drive provides an ideal solution for mobile computing and consumer electronics.

Toshiba's lightweight, two-platter 80GB hard disk drive weighs only 98 grams, providing high performance in a slim design. Also available in a 40GB capacity (MK4025GAS), Toshiba's latest hard disk drives accommodate the storage needs of multi-functional mobile PCs and other applications, such as telecommunications, printers, copiers, GPS systems and MP3 players.

"Toshiba is continuing to lead the way in small, portable, high-capacity hard disk drives," said Amy Dalphy, manager, HDD business unit, Toshiba SDD. "These new drives provide capacious storage to portable devices, expanding product possibilities for the world's ever-shrinking, ever-more-mobile digital designs."

Toshiba's hard disk drives can withstand operational shock of up to 200G and non-operating shock of up to 800G, providing PC and consumer electronics manufacturers with a rugged, durable storage solution. The 2.5-inch drives support the ATA-6 interface and have a rotational speed of 4,200 RPM.

Toshiba's 40GB and 80GB drives are available now. For more information, visit www.harddrives.toshiba.com.
