The future replacement of 500 series is codenamed Cherryville and this one goes all the way up to 480GB. It is based on 25nm MLC and it should get higher speeds than 510 series. The drive once it gets available ships as 2.5 inch disk and it supports SATA 6Gb/s. It comes in 60GB,120GB, 180GB, 240GB and 480GB, but the current price is unknown.

The next, next generation of 500 series drives is 20nm NAND based and should come in Q2 2012, and it is being developed under King Crest codename.
