HardwareZone had an interview with James M. Chirico, the Senior VP of Global Operations at Seagate, about their upcoming products, the new perpendicular recording technology and other developments on the storage market.
HWZ : When do you think we can break the Terabyte barrier?

Chirico : Well, we're shipping a 500GB drive now. The Tera barrier would probably be within two to three years time. Since we're on a projected growth of areal density of about 40% a year, so in about two to three years, we should be in the area of about a 900GB to a Terabyte.
