New Toshiba drives could boost iPod capacity by 10x

New drive for iPod?

Toshiba today announced that it has begun shipping its new Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) 1.8-inch hard drive, the first of its kind and possibly the future of Apple's iPod. The that use 1.8-inch hard drives, such the iPod. PMR technology can squeeze up to 10 times more data onto the drive than conventional hard disks because PMR stacks the digital data perpendicularly rather than horizontally. Forthcoming iPods could potentially store 10 times the number of songs currently possible and remain the same size, according to a TechNewsWorld. The cost of PMR hard drives is also expected to remain on-par with current cost-per-gigabyte pricing of standard devices, according to the report.
