Seagate launches first 4TB HDD

Tuesday night Seagate said it’s now shipping the industry’s first 4 TB 3.5-inch HDD via the new GoFlex Desk 4TB external drive. In addition to its massive storage capacity, the HDD also showcases a new look for the GoFlex family, sporting a streamlined, industrial (and less round) design.

Available soon online  for $249.99 USD, the 4 TB external drive will come pre-loaded with backup software (with 192-bit Triple DES encryption), a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 adapter base with a lighted capacity gauge (seen left, and a 5-foot USB 2.0 or 3.0 cable. The overall size of the unit will be 6.22 x 4.88 x 1.73-inches.

Seagate said that the new 4 TB drive can be used on both the PC and Mac platforms without formatting. System requirements include Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (32–bit & 64–bit) operating system or Mac OS X operating system 10.4.9 or higher, a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port.

Android Tablet with 250GB storage ?!?!?!

Archos’ upcoming Android “Honeycomb” 3.2 tablet will pack a 250GB hard disk drive that’s been tweaked to perform more like a flash drive. The Archos G9 will sport a 250GB Seagate Momentus thin 2.5-inch hard drive–a mere 7 millimeters thick. Though not as compact as a 1.8-inch HDD (like Apple once used in its MacBook Air and iPod), it’s not as expensive either.
