Toshiba develops 100GB 1.8-inch hard drive

Higher capacity music players and laptop computers could be on the way thanks to a new hard-disk drive from Toshiba that manages a 25 percent jump in storage space over current models.

The new 1.8-inch hard-disk drive can store 100GB of information whereas current models hold a maximum of 80GB. The drives are about the same size as a PC Card and are commonly used in music players, like Apple's iPod, and compact laptop computers.

Toshiba plans to start mass producing the drives in January next year. The company won't sell them direct to end-users but to other companies for integration into their products. In the past, device makers have typically incorporated higher capacity drives quickly into their products.
