The 2013 Nexus 7 comes with either 16GB or 32GB of storage. That’s not enough. Samsung’s tablets come with memory card slots so you can add 64GB of storage. That’s still not enough. So what’s a media addict supposed to do? Hope that a hardware maker is crazy enough to build an Android device using Seagate’s new 500GB hard drives.
No, that’s not a typo. Seagate just announced a 500GB hard drive, spinning magnets and all, that’s 5 millimeters thick and comes in your standard 2.5 inch form factor. There’s no pricing information, sadly, nor is there any information about when these things will come out. But you’ve got to think to yourself, how much storage does one person really need?
Granted, I fully understand some of you live in areas where mobile data is either too expensive or too spotty, but how many illegal movies do you need to have with you at all times? If you really need the extra storage, just do what I do. Buy a USB-on-the-go cable, buy a massive USB key, and then you’re set.
You’re not going to get 500GB, but you could always buy multiple 64GB keys, right?
