Read the full story at EETimes:

"SAN JOSE, Calif. — Hitachi Global Storage Technologies announced its first terabyte drive on Friday (Jan. 5).

Hitachi's achievement of packing a terabyte in a 3.5-inch hard drive is part of the industry's broader shift to perpendicular from longitudinal recording. That generational change is proceeding well for most players, with market leader Seagate Technology well ahead of the pack and expected to leapfrog Hitachi's announcement soon.

Hitachi's terabyte drives are the company's first 3.5-inch drives to use perpendicular recording. It initially applied the new recording technique to the 2.5-inch notebook drives that are its bread and butter."
