Toshiba has announced a new 1.8-inch small form factor hard drive that packs 240Gb of storage. Toshiba says that this is the world's first dual-platter 240GB drive and the world's first single platter 120GB drive in the 1.8-inch size.

The hard drive will eventually find its way into MP3 players and camcorders among other things and will ship in time for holiday shopping. It's safe to say that we will be seeing 240GB iPods and Zune's using the drive.

The 240Gb drive is called the MK2431GAH and spins at 4200 rpm. The areal density of the drive is 344 GB/in and it has a media transfer rate of 488 Mbps with an average seek time of 15ms. The buffer for the drive is 8MB and it uses parallel ATA technology. External dimensions are 54mm x 71mm x 8.0mm. Shock resistance is 500G while operating and 1500G when not operating.
