Day one of GITEX Technology Week marks the global commercial debut of digital storage specialist Verbatim's new 2.5- and 3.5-inch external hard disk drives featuring the company's new corporate branding and expanded feature set.

The 2.5-inch drive, which is supplied with either a USB 2.0 or Firewire connection as standard, is available in storage capacities of 120GB, 160GB and 250GB.

A 3.5-inch hard disk drive is also available in 500GB or 750GB capacities with the optional inclusion of an Ethernet connection for local network accessibility.

Verbatim sales manager for the Middle East Ziad Arab says the company is keen to expand its presence in the external hard disk drive market following its recent acquisition of US-based company SmartDisk Corporation.

"With the acquisition of SmartDisk, we are now well-positioned to ensure product quality and expertise in the external hard disk drive sector," he claims.

"It also means that we can now offer our customers high quality external hard drives with a variety of connections such as USB 2.0, Firewire and Ethernet."

Located at stand F10-4 in the Sheikh Maktoum Hall, Verbatim is also showcasing an array of products ranging from optical storage media devices, USB storage devices and memory cards.

Other highlights include working examples of the company's first-generation HD-DVD DL Dual Layer disc with 30GB storage capacity, SDHC and CompactFlash Memory Cards with 4GB and 8GB storage space and the USB 2.0 Store ‘n Go ‘Carry it Easy + Plus' system.

Verbatim is also showcasing a range of wireless, optical and laser computer mice along with headsets, speakers and universal card readers at this week's show.
