Toshiba has licensed Iomega?s slimline zip drive technology for notebooks, expanding its number of uses.
The company now has full rights to redesign, manufacture and market the drives and external PCMCIA -connected zip solutions to OEM notebook manufacturers world-wide.
As part of the contract, Toshiba will also be engineering and manufacturing slimline Zip drives for Iomega itself.
Up until now, Iomega?s slimline Zip drive has been almost exclusively used for notebook applications.
However, following the deal with Toshiba, the drive will also be available for other external and integrated PC applications, as well as standalone set top boxes, game systems and audio and medical devices, that could benefit from a smaller profile Zip drive.
