On Monday, at the annual Samsung Mobile Solution Forum in Taipei, Taiwan, Samsung Electronics announced the development of its new solid state drive (SSD).

The SSD is around 2.5-inches long and only 9.5-mm thick; according to the company, it is the world’s smallest drive in its class. Size is definitely not the only thing that sets this product apart: it is said to be 2.4 times faster than any traditional hard drive and the amount of data it can read per second goes up to 200 megabytes.
