Digit Online news - Toshiba backs larger disc format

1TB per disk is the potential for this medium (HVD or holographic versatile disk), however initial products due in June 2006 will support 200GB writable disks and consumer read-only disks will be at the 100GB mark (hopefully launched in 2007).

Current single layer disks only support 4.7GB and even the new HD-DVD disks only support 15GB.

With the advances in optical storage it's likely >TB devices are going to start appearing everywhere.
