Seagate, a company with a respectable reputation in the storage field, has recently announced a 5mm-thin, 2.5-inch Ultra Mobile HHD that comes with an impressive 500 GB storage and is designed exclusively for mobile devices such as tablets. The disk itself is known to be extremely resistant to shock, heat, and gyroscopic motions, and is reportedly small enough to be able fit into hardware bodies of different thickness and sizes.

One interesting catch with Seagate’s product, as mentioned by ZDNET, is that it will apparently only work with Android. OEMs interested in using the company’s product, further, will need to use the company’s specially designed mobile enable kit in order to fully optimize the disk and push the storage performance to its fullest potential.
