From: Disk

Generally looks like a slightly overweight floppy. All current ones
are single-sided.

First generation 3.5 MO was 128 MB on a cartridge.

Second generation devices (available now) are 230 MB.

Third generation (due out this year?) will be 650 MB.

If they bring the drive price down, could displace floppies as the
basic shirtpocket-transportable medium.
