Japanese consumer electronics giant, Toshiba, will release a 5GB harddrive in this week's Japanese electronics show that will connect to the host device, such as PDA, Symbian-based cell phone or a laptop using wireless Bluetooth connection.
Device is based on the Toshiba's 1.8 inch harddrive and is bundled with a Bluetooth device. The whole device weights around 180 grams (6.3 ounces for Americanos) which makes it pretty ideal PDA companion. With the latest Xscale-based PocketPC devices and device like this, PDA can actually work as a decent portable movie player.

Device will be launched for Japanese consumers in November and Toshiba doesn't have currently plans to sell the drive outside Japan. Retail price of the drive will be around $410.
