Coming soon: 100 gig iPods, and Zunes perhaps

Next month Toshiba will start producing 1.8-inch 100 gigabyte drives that will be used in the next generation of MP3 players and portable computers, according to this ComputerWorld report pegged to the Consumer Electronics Show.

Apple is one likely customer. But Toshiba’s also close to Microsoft — it’s building the first generation Zunes and using Windows Portable Media Center software in Toshiba branded players. So who will sell the first 100 gig player?

Toshiba says the drives can accommodate more video on personal devices. They may also be used to produce even smaller computers, perhaps Ultra-Mobile PCs.
