Philips apparently has big plans for an all-Hitachi USB drive series. First to come is the rugged 10GB USB drive driven by Hitachi 3600-rpm 1" MicroDrive. What makes this special is that it can be withstand a 1.8m drop and that it comes with a truckload of Nero Sync and Backup. Let's hope the Philips drives can help Hitachi offset the loss of business due to Apple switching HDD to flash. Philips will also release 2.5" & 3.5" Hitachi USB drives with capacity ranging from 40GB to 400GB. Read on at EverythingUSB.
