Toshiba’s 60GB 1.8″ drive

Toshiba today announced plans to release a 1.8 inch, 60GB hard drive in the third quarter of 2004. The former high-capacity leader in their 1.8 inch HD line (40GB) used two disc platters of 20GB each, and the new model uses two disc platters of 30GB each. First customers placing orders include Apple Computer, so one can expect we’ll see 60GB iPods hitting the market soon.
