Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD Powers Haier Computer’s First 13-Inch Tablet/PC, the Sailing P13A

Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX), a worldwide leader in storage solutions, today announced that its Seagate® Ultra Mobile HDD will be utilized in the latest generation of Haier Computer’s 13-inch Tablet/PC— the Sailing P13A. The company also disclosed that Haier Computer has selected Seagate hard disk drives (HDD) to be the standard in all of its PC products.

“Seagate has an ongoing strategic alliance with Haier and is committed to jointly delivering industry-leading PC products that consumers desire— and the Sailing P13A does just that,” said Sandy Sun, Seagate’s vice president and general manager for China. “Outfitted with the Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD, the P13A enables Haier to comfortably integrate high-capacity storage into its Tablet/PC enabling users to enjoy their content in a tablet form factor at home, on-the-go, wherever.”

Delivering the similar power, performance and reliability of a flash device, when integrated into a tablet the Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD provides up to 7x the storage capacity of a traditional 64GB tablet. It features up to 500GB of capacity delivering the highest capacity available in a small, ultra-thin form factor while supporting over 100,000 photos, 125,000 songs or 62 hours of high-definition video and movies.

“Our relationship with Seagate extends over ten years, a partnership that has enabled us to deliver some of the most dynamic, cutting-edge products in the industry as well as fuel growth in China for both companies,” said Zhou Zhaolin, general manager of Haier Computer. “A truly ground-breaking product, the Sail P13A delivers high-capacity storage in one of the thinnest, lightest Tablet/ PC form factors available on the market today and is a perfect example of our strategic alliance.”

To further reinforce reliability for mobile devices, the Seagate Ultra Mobile HDD integrates Seagate’s own Zero Gravity™ Sensor providing better shock management. Incorporated power modes support the drive in sleep, standby and idle enabling it to consume as low as 0.14W and support the long battery life demanded by tablets.

Leveraging the company’s experience with ultra-portable applications like iPods, MP3 players, and handheld video recorders, the newly-engineered Seagate 2.5-inch Ultra Mobile HDD is just 5mm thin while weighing in at a mere 3.3oz— about the same as a light bulb. Its slim, rugged design allows it to be utilized in new emerging applications like convertible and detachable storage.

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
