Even as laptop manufacturers are shipping laptops with flash-based Solid State Drives, PC World is reporting that Fujitsu is working on 2.5-inch 1.2TB hard drives for laptops.
Yes, you read that right – 2.5″ 1.2TB hard drives. Not only that, but they are talking about shipping them within two and a half years, by 2010. It’s fairly safe to say that Solid State Drives (SSDs) won’t be hitting 1.2TB by then.
Fujitsu is set to make the announcement today or tomorrow. It’s based on Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) technology.
