S3 Station and S2 Portable updated
Samsung this evening took advantage of advances in hard drives in the past few weeks to upgrade its external hard drives. The S3 Station desktop drive now jumps to 2TB (from 1.5TB) while the S2 Portable climbs from 500GB to 640GB. Either attaches through USB and have extras like automated backup and a "secret" partition for private data.
Samsung hasn't disclosed pricing but says the S2 Portable update will ship this month, while the S3 Station won't appear until early 2010. Lower capacities of these are already available in the US and work with both Macs and Windows PCs.
