<p>Sydney, Australia. - July 16 2007 - Expanding its lineup of consumer-friendly, easy-to-use external hard drives, Western Digital announced that its new 250 GB capacity WD Passport® Portable Drives are now available. This sharp increase in storage offers consumers one of the first handheld storage devices with a whopping one-quarter terabyte capacity.</p>
<p>WD Passport Portable Drives have become popular worldwide for their plug-and-play capability, stylish, ultra-portable design, and sleek piano-black finish. At less than five ounces, this lightweight drive fits neatly in a pocket or backpack and is the perfect gadget to back up today's increasingly large files from digital pictures, HD (high definition) video and music.</p>
<p>WD Sync™ software allows consumers to take desktop content with them by simplifying the synchronization of essential personal files and Microsoft® Outlook® data on a PC.
