640GB FreeAgent Go Slips
Seagate today inadvertently spoiled its plans by posting a product page for a 640GB FreeAgent Go. The drive would represent one of the first 2.5-inch external drives to break the 500GB ceiling; differences aren't evident except for in color, where the 640GB disk will only come in black or silver instead of the several colors available with the smaller capacities.
The drive should be USB-only and still support Seagate's optional docking station. A ship date and a price are understandably absent but should be available soon; it will likely cost as much or more as the 500GB model does today. It's not known if Seagate will phase out one or more of the lower capacities as a result of the added storage. [via Everything USB]
