July 29, 2008 Tech companies just love being able to lay claim to that “world’s smallest” title and hard drive manufacturers are no different with Freecom boasting the “world’s smallest and lightest” portable 2.5-inch USB 2.0 external hard drive with the Mobile Drive XXS.

Freecom claims the Mobile Drive XXS provides a 27% reduction in size compared to its closest competitor, and weighs in at just 155g with 160GB, 250GB and 320GB capacity models available. The unit is USB bus powered over a USB 2.0 or 1.0 connection with data speeds of up to 480Mbp/s over USB 2.0 and the PC and Mac compatible drive comes in a form fitting rubber sleeve to ensure it doesn’t slip through your fingers.

The Freecom Mobile Drive XXS 160GB model is available now for UKP 44.99 (approx US$90) while the 320 GB model goes for UKP 79.99 (approx US$160).
