Samsung's 4GB 0.85-inch mini drive

Toshiba's line of 0.85-inch mini hard drives is getting some competition from Samsung, which announced this past Friday that they'll have a 0.85-inch hard drive of their own out sometime in Q3 of this year. The best part (for us, not for Toshiba) is that they're going straight to the head of the class with a 4GB drive that'll go toe-to-toe with that new 4GB drive Toshiba is putting into mass production soon. Samsung's already started putting 1.5GB and 3GB 1-inch drives into cellphones (the SPH-V5400 and the SGH-I300, respectively), so we fully expect them to do the same with this new 4GB drive.
