9.5mm with two 500GB platters
Following the recent venture of Western Digital, Toshiba has now joined the slim 2.5-inch 1TB club. The new MQ01ABD series will be available in capacities of up to 1TB at a normal 9.5mm thickness.

The entire series feature SATA 3.0Gbps interface, 8MB of cache and spins at 5400RPM with average seek time of 12ms. The top offer of the series is, of course, the 1TB model with two 500GB platters while the entire series will also be available in 250, 320, 500 and 750GB capacities.

The new 9.5mm 2.5-inch HDD series should enter mass production during this month so we guess that you can expect it on retail/e-tail shelves earliest as of next month. Of course, we are sure that the rest of the HDD manufacturers will follow WD and Toshiba pretty soon.
