“Toshiba on Tuesday announced new 100GB models of a small hard drive, a move that could lead to larger-capacity iPods next year,” Stephen Shankland reports for CNET News.
“A Toshiba representative wouldn’t discuss customer plans for the 1.8-inch drive, and Apple Computer declined to comment on the possibility of a boost to the music device, describing it as speculation,” Shankland reports. “However, Apple uses Toshiba drives in its higher-end iPods and has historically snapped up the latest models. Most recently, it added an 80GB version of its video iPod in September.”
Shankland reports, “Products using the new drives are expected to be on sale in the first quarter of 2007, the Toshiba representative said.”
