Fujitsu has begun selling 60GB 2.5-inch hard drives to portable computer makers, the company said Wednesday. The company also announced two other 9.5mm-tall models with 30GB and 40GB capacity, all using motors with the company's fluid dynamic bearing technology to keep operations quiet. The company didn't release pricing information.
Rival IBM, which sells a 40GB 2.5-inch drive and is in the process ofits hard drive business to Hitachi, has plans of its own. It plans to leapfrog Fujitsu with a drive larger than 60GB before the end of the year, spokeswoman Eliza Chan said.
