Seagate teases Android tablet with 500GB HDD

Seagate logoWe have seen a lot of interesting tablets on the grounds at CES 2014, but the next one certainly stands out a little more than the average product.

It appears that storage manufacturer Seagate is planning to jump onboard the slate bandwagon and has showed a reference design that crams under a relatively thin figure, a 500GB hard drive.

The reference model is built using the company's new 5 mm / 0.19 inches hard drive and apparently, Seagate will have a new SSHD solution out too. The only problem is that the drive appears to take up most of the space under the hood, meaning there’s no place left for a decent battery.

According to Tweaktown, the tablet runs on Android’s latest OS (which means Android 4.4. KitKat) and is surprisingly light considering what’s on the inside.
