Farewell to Sony’s 3.5-inch Floppy Disks
After 29 years of global market life since their worldwide debut in 1981, Sony’s 3.5 floppy discs will take their place among the once-upon-a-time pieces of technology items as the company announced on April 23 of their decision to cease their sales in Japan at the end of March 2011. Hence their anachronistic existence in the Millennium markets officially does come to an end.
P.S. I guess most of you, just like I did, are already surprised to know that they still have been selling in this day and age. In fact, Sony are reportedly sold around 12 million discs in the Japanese market in 2009.
