Seagate confirms 1TB single-disc hard drive is on its way

Seagate's 1TB, 3.5-inch hard drive will be based on perpendicular recording technology.

Back in April, Seagate released its first single-disc 750GB hard drive based on perpendicular recording technology. Today, Seagate's corporate communications team sent out an e-mail that confirms they're working on a 1TB 3.5-inch hard drive, also based on the same technology. There's no actual product announcement, which is, well, odd. But according to Seagate, we should see shipment of the 1TB drive in the first half of 2007.

And if you find visual aids helpful, check out Hitachi's jaw-dropping video that explains the gist of perpendicular recording. I apologize for foisting disco on you. Actually, I lied--I totally don't apologize.
