Cornice Introduces 2.0GB Mini 'Storage Element' [Updated]

Today, Cornice introduced a 2.0 GB
"Storage Element"
(PDF). The new storage device "will allow electronics device manufacturers to build new pocket-able products that store more music, video, and pictures as well as more office productivity files such as presentations and word processing documents."

The 2.0GB Storage Element is available in volume quantities now for a list price of $70 per unit in quantities of 100,000 per year.

These 2.0GB (presumed) hard drives may be one of the last pieces of the Mini iPod rumor puzzle that has taken over the Mac-web in the past few weeks. We had previously noted Cornice as a potential source of inexpensive drives for the upcoming iPods.

Update: This marketing brochure (PDF) offers a photo of the new device as well as some specs. The new drive is "magnetic media" based, 42.8mm x 36.4mm x 5mm, has a 4.5Mbytes/sec average transfer rate, and weighs 14.5 grams.
