Toshiba releases Blu Ray player! has learned through sources in the distribution and retail business that the buzz is Toshiba already has a Blu-Ray player in the works ready for production for a September 08 release but now this has been pushed up to a July 08 release with recent events in the industry.
This would make sense as Toshiba is a major electronics giant and supporting Blu-Ray will only benefit the company in the long run. Toshiba is currently liquidating HD-DVD players for as little as $90.00 which many analyst consider to be under their cost but as demand dries up Toshiba is trying to cash in on last minute consumers that will be swayed by price alone.
One source cited 2 players are in the works with a price target of $250 and $350.00.

LOL! Too funny.. nonetheless, the same site that reportedly verified that Circuit City was discontinuing HD DVD, only to be proven wrong.

I also find this hard to believe. I can't vouch for the reliability of the source; I was just curious to post here to see if anyone else could confirm or refute this claim.

I mean no disrespect to that site but I have never heard of it.

Anybody can make up anything.

I have sources WAY inside at MS and I don't hear anything like this.
