Seagate will donate ten per cent of the purchase price of a limited edition pink version of its Pocket Hard Drive external disk to US breast cancer charity the Komen Foundation, the storage company said today. It also said it has begun shipping a 750GB HDD for DVRs.

The $109 pink Pocket Drive packs in 6GB of USB-connected storage and comes pre-loaded with music and videos from women musicians, including Joan Jett, Stefy, Toby Lightman, Megan McCauley, Stephanie McKay, Alana Davis, Andrea Rosario and Annie Stela, to help promote raise awareness of the disease and how it can be fought.

The DB35 series of consumer electronics-oriented hard drives, meanwhile, is now shipping to device manufacturers, Seagate said. The top-of-the-line capacity is 750GB, but the drive family - which uses perpendicular recording - is also available in 250, 320, 400, 500GB versions. ®
