Seagate has announced it will ship higher capacity one inch hard drives to manufacturers during the third quarter of this year. The new drive increases storage to 12 GB by switching to perpendicular recording technology. The device holds more, but it is physically smaller and uses less power than previous models. Seagate also added shock protection to the drive since it is designed for portable devices. Last month Cornice announced similar drives in 8 and 10 GB sizes.
