WESTERN DIGITAL HAS unveiled what it claims is the world's first one terabyte 2.5-inch hard disk drive.
Falling within WD's Scorpio Blue range, this 333GB per platter SATA drive is priced at €205. There's also a 750GB version for €140.
When the INQ asked Western Digital if there are any system builders set to incorporate the beast in their machines, we got the inevitable dalek-like response: "WD is working with a number of UK external hard drive and gaming computer manufacturers."
However, within the same breath WD announced their own new external portable storage device - My Passport Essential SE portable USB drive - which incorporates the HDD.
So at least someone is buying the drive.
Seagate is still playing catch-up in this space, offering currently a 640GB 2.5-inch HDD at 300GB per platter. µ
