Comdex Fall, Las Vegas: Mitsubishi puts floppy on PC card

Martin Veitch live from Comdex, Las Vegas

Mitsubishi this week showed one of the smartest storage solutions here: a 1.44Mb floppy disk that fits into a Type II PC Card slot. The 1.7-inch disks are aimed at users of handheld PCs.

Separately, Mitumi showed off 130Mb floppy drive technology that can also read old 720Kb and 1.44Mb floppies. The products will compete with the Compaq-backed LS-120 120Mb floppy standard.
