Fujitsu is about to announce its new hard disk drives for mobile computers that will use 25GB platters and provide up to 100GB of storage for users on the run. The move will put Fujitsu in line with Toshiba, who unveiled its 100GB mobile HDD in late April 2004.

One of the world’s largest HDDs for laptops is not expected to deliver really high performance, but is likely to allow users of mobile PCs to store more information that it was previously possible with disks designed specifically for laptops. web-site reports that Fujitsu’s upcoming 2.5” hard disk drive with large capacity will be called Hornet V50. The unit will work only at 4200rpm, much slower compared to contemporary mobile HDD that have 5400rpm motors. However, just like Toshiba’s offering, Fujitsu’s new mobile HDD will have 8MB cache that is likely to intensify the performance of the part.

Power consumption, shock resistance and other important parameters for mobile HDD were not available at press time. The HDD is likely to be priced around 299 Euro.
