Fujitsu said demand for its mobile hard-disk drives was strong in the third quarter of this year with its shipments up 50 percent on the same period a year earlier.

The company reported mobile drive shipments for the July to September period of 4.9 million units and enterprise drive shipments of 1.2 million units.

Fujitsu cited several new drives, including 2.5-inch 100G-byte and 160G-byte Serial ATA (SATA) drives, as part of the reason for the strong demand. Sales of mobile drives to all top OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) grew, the company said without naming which OEMs it includes in that group.
