Toshiba Claims 500GB Canvio Slim is World's Thinnest Portable Hard Drive

Maximum PC: Toshiba's new (and somewhat redundantly named) 'Canvio Slim Portable External Hard Drive' makes it easier than ever to cram 500GB of data into your pants or shirt pocket. That's because the new Canvio drive is supposedly the world's thinnest portable model. It's just 9 mm thick, which is ever-so-slightly chunkier than a Samsung Galaxy S III (8.6 mm), to give you a point of reference. The drive is also 107 mm long and 75 mm wide, which coverts to 0.35 inches by 4.21 inches by 2.95 inches, if you have an aversion to the metric system.
