Not necessarily "around the corner," but ...  

They're looking at releasing HAMR drives by 2010, and doing so should 
increase the areal density of HDD platters significantly.  Of course, 
last time I mentioned this, I was attacked for believing the media hype 
( http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/301570#301570 ), so 
maybe I'm just too gullible.
