    Samsung to Launch Phone with Mini Hard Drive

    Tue Sep 7, 6:31 AM ET Add Technology - Reuters to My Yahoo!



    SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., the world's third-largest handset maker, said on Tuesday it was launching the first mobile phone with a stamp-sized hard disc drive this month that would expand the memory capacity by 15 times.



    The phone is equipped with a one-inch diagonal 1.5 gigabyte hard disc drive that expands the memory capacity of mobile phones from the conventional 100 megabyte.


    It also comes with a mega-pixel camera and boasts a high-resolution 2.2-inch liquid crystal display. The phone includes features such as MP3 player, electronic book and a dictionary.


    The South Korean firm said a powerful microphone enhanced the phone's camcorder function, while dual speakers provide a three dimensional sound effect. It did not give a price for the phone, which will be available in Korea this month.

    How long will it be before someone lays their phone on the little pad at the checkout counter at Walmart and loses everything they ever had on their phone?

    Sounds like the capability of the technology is starting to surpass the batteries capability.
