Seagate presents Ultra Mobile HDD hard drive

The US company Seagate has announced a new hard drive designed for notebooks, ultrabooks and tablets.

The new company product carries the Ultra Mobile HDD moniker and is available in the usual 2.5-inch form factor. It weighs just 93.5 grams and packs 500 GB of capacity. The chassis of the drive is made of stainless steel and is sturdy enough to sustain shock caused by drops and vibrations, which makes the drive suitable for use in smartphones and MP3 players too without this shortening the life of the drive. The magic is hidden in special Seagate technology that includes an accelerometer. Once the sensor senses that the drive is in free fall it parks the recording heads within 60 ms, which protects the drive from receiving fatal damage.

According to Seagate the Ultra Mobile HDD can pack 100 000 photos, 125 000 songs and 62 hours of HD video. The drive also comes with Dynamic Data Driver software that follows the drive temperature and helps in avoiding overheating that can shorten the drive life.

The pricing of the Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD is still unknown.
