Seagate claims the this new storage technology can deliver up to 7x the storage capacity of a traditional 64GB tablet with the same power, performance and reliability of a flash device. If that’s the case then we’re looking at almost 500GB of internal storage for a mobile device.

In addition, the 2.5-inch drive is just 5mm thin while weighing in at a mere 3.3oz. It will be well insulated to survive accidental drops and will utilize Dynamic Data Driver software for reduced power consumption and improved performance.

    if HP or any other companies could create a 1 terabyte usb, is it possible to create a 1 terabyte sd card too? I just saw my friend’s 1 terabyte USB and it’s soooo small

    why not put that inside a smartphone? no?

      Di nga? Milyonaryo ba yung kaibigan mo? Baka naman yung peke na Kingston DT200 na 512 GB at 1 TB na faked in China, kakalabas lang kasi nung Jan. 2013, nung Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 1TB na USB 3.0 na drive na nagkakahalaga nang $1,200. Recently, lang lumabas sa market yun at di pa yan ata available sa Pinas dahil sobrang mahal. Bale, baka naman kamaganak ni Napoles yung kakilala mo, ano nga naman ba ang P52,000+ para sa USB drive. Hehehehe!

      he’s really rich but he told me na 3.5k php lang bili niya. At first syempre I’m not believing him but when he plug it into my laptop BAM! I was never been so happy to be proven wrong in my entire life hahahaha!

    • JasonWilliams says:

      Maniniwala na sana ako, kaya lang 3.5k for 1tb usb? LOL

    • FYI says:

      Fyi lang po. Di porket nakita nyo sa pc na nareread ang isang storage device as having a particular capacity (in this case 1tb) e ibig sabihn 1tb na nga talaga yun. May mga storage device na pineke ang storage capacity para magmukhang mas malaki sa kaya lang naman talagang iretain na data ng device. For example ang 32gb na usb stick palalabasin na 1tb pag sinakasak sa pc pero ang maximum lang na kayang iretain na data e 32gb pa rin. Pag lumagpas na sa 32gb buburahin na yung mga nauunang nakasave. Talamak mga ganyan sa ebay. Un mga seller from china at hongkong mostly. Hindi ko naman masasabi na peke yang 1tb usb ng kakilala mo dahil di ko naman mainspeksyon yun, pero sobrang mura naman ng bili nya considering na bago pa lang yung technology. Sabi nga sa kasabihan “when something sounds too good to be true, it probably is”…

    My Problem than wasn’t stated on this article will it work with Tablets and Mobile Devices that utilises the SSD because of it no moving parts thus no damage on storage on sudden movements, tilts and shakes.

    In fairness sa actual use ung 64gb sa smartphone or tablet is big enough,at least for professionals and businessmen, dahil may desktop at notebook nman, un lang if ang laman niang phone tablet storage mo ay panay kakagagohan na porn eh kahit pa zigabyte dala mo kung fan ka ni barely legal kulang pa un.
    Hehe

    “It will be well insulated to survive accidental drops and will utilize Dynamic Data Driver software for reduced power consumption and improved performance”…

    They already promised these before..

    Naka 15 portable 2.5 HDD na ako and they would not last kahit a 10 mm drop o slight (bend)yupi lang …

    wala lahat ang partition mo…

    My 3.5 were almost 8 years.

    They never learn.. but puro RMAs..

    Its better to use SDD or 3.5 solid HDD kahit na i untog mo sya ng 1 meter at itapon ng 2 year old na lalaki na anak mo…

    Buhay parin kahit 7 years or still running…

    just minimize writing as much as possible..

    HDD killers are :
    Multipart downloader softwares
    Defragmenters

    realtime synchers specially in mobile phones, papatayin yung microsd mo kinabukasan at ma shoshock ka nalang..

    warning lang para sa me mechanical na thin disks HDD…
