Transcend introduced its new hard disk 2.2GB CF+ Type II 1" HDD designed for MP3 players, digital cameras, notebooks, etc. According to the company, 2.2GB is enough for 80 video games and a whole lot of any high-quality photos.
Other specs are:

- 3.3-6.5MB/s sustained data rate
- 4200rpm rotation speed
- 10ms avg. seek time

Despite such small-size novelties, 3.5" drives dominated in 2003. Their share is expected to make 81.3% (about 179 million units). Besides, the share of 2.5" drives is to make 18.7% (about 41 million units). At that analysts believe that the gradual transition to 2.5" disks is inevitable because such solutions are optimal for notebooks and consumer electronics.
