Micro-Sized Hard Drives
: "Colorado-based Cornice has introduced a 1-inch, 2GB drive it calls a "storage element." Several consumer electronics manufacturers already use Cornice's previous-generation storage elements, including PortalPlayer, SigmaTel, and Texas Instruments. The new 2GB model is aimed at portable video, multimedia, and GPS applications, and has a unit price of $70 in quantities of 100,000. Like the previous Cornice drives, the 2GB contains fewer parts than many comparable products.." They expect to increase in capacity at a rate of about 50 percent per year. Toshiba and Hitachi also have .85 and 1 inch drives with 1-4 Gb. 8:26:59 AM
