1TB drives to ship in 2006

Hitachi has announced that it will likely offer a 1TB 3.5-inch hard drive before the years' end, according to Hitachi's senior vice president Bill Healy. Perpendicular recording technology is quickly advancing the capacity of hard drives, which up until recently topped out at the 500GB mark. Hitachi also revealed that it will debut holographic removable storage this year in a 300GB write-once format, according to Electronista, with larger capacities and rewriting capability slated to arrive in the future.
