Portable 1TB drive from WD

Western Digital announced a portable 1TB drive today – the highest capacity portable drive so far. The My Passport Essential SE 1TB drive comes with USB 2.0 and built-in synchronization and encryption software (for Windows). They also have a model that can be built into laptops as an internal 1TB drive.

Theoretically it should be shipping today as per their announcement, but it is not yet listed in either the WD online store, nor on Amazon. Can’t wait to place my order…

UPDATE:The drive is now available for sale in the WD Online Store
