Samsung has just unveiled the S2 portable external hard drive, which is likely to be known more for its speed than its capacity.

The S2 is extra special since it has SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and boasts a 7200RPM spindle speed. That means we're looking at a maximum transfer speed of 5Gbps. There are some sound technology add-ons to keep things quiet, as well as a back-up software and two other programs for data-encryption and password protection.

Available in the several shades seen above, the S2 will be available in two capacities (320GB and 640GB) in the E.U. this month.
