Seagate empowers Tablet Market with New Ultra Mobile HDD

Seagate Technology has unveiled the new Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD designed exclusively for mobile devices. Integrated with the Seagate Mobile Enablement Kit, the new storage solution can deliver up to 7x the storage capacity of a traditional 64GB tablet.
Steve Luczo, President, CEO & Chairman, Seagate, said, Coupling an ultra-thin, high-capacity HDD with software designed to optimize integration into tablets at a value-add price has allowed us to deliver a truly groundbreaking solution, enabling our partners to reimagine the mobile device. By empowering our OEMs with this revolutionary new technology, we have invited the industry to re-think the mobile market making this offering a true game-changer in the world of storage.
To keep pace with today’s mobile storage demands, the newly launched Ultra Mobile HDD with the Dynamic Data Driver software alleviates these obstacles enabling OEMs to comfortably fit high-capacity storage into mobile devices.
Leveraging the company’s experience with ultra-portable applications like iPods, MP3 players, and handheld video recorders, the newly engineered 2.5-inch drive  is just 5mm thin while weighing at a mere 3.3oz  about the same as a light bulb.
The Seagate Mobile Enablement Kit includes the Ultra Mobile HDD, Dynamic Data Driver software, and an optional customized reference design which allows HDD-powered tablets to transparently deliver high capacity storage space to an end-user in a mobile solution. The kit is currently designed to support the Android operating system.

The Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD will be available separately and as part of the Seagate Mobile Enablement Kit.
