Super-Slim SSD Promises Super Speeds

Formay's new drive resting on top of a credit-card.

What's less than half a centimeter thick, has a smaller footprint than a credit card, and stores up to 400GB of data? It's the latest SSD from Foremay. Foremay announced this Tuesday that it will begin shipping its new 1.8-inch SSDs. These new SSDs come in two configurations: The first is a 5mm-thick model; the second is even thinner--it's only 3.3mm thick. The company claims that these are the world's fastest 1.8-inch SSD drives, boasting read/write speeds of up to 280MB per second.

These new slimline drives, which are available with capacities of up to 400GB, are intended for use in various handheld and portable tech, such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, GPS devices, and digital camcorders. The thought of a fast 400GB solid-state drive within a tablet is certainty a tempting one.

Although shipping now, sadly no pricing details of Foremay's super slim drives were mentioned.
