As we all know, Toshiba was the proponent behind HD DVD. Even after the demise of the format, Toshiba seemingly was reluctant to give up on the format and join the Blu-ray side. They instead switched to producing a new upscaling DVD player, touting it as an equal to the presentation given by Blu-ray. Well now it appears that Toshiba has finally joined the Blu-ray craze.
There are unconfirmed reports that Toshiba has announced that they will
be releasing a Blu-ray player by the end of the year. The report comes
from Japan's Yomiuri. The announcement also indicates that Toshiba
could be releasing a Blu-ray recorder as well. Tech geeks are hopeful
that the player will make it stateside by the holidays. With the
recently released Samsung and Oppo Blu-ray players, another
introduction will surely help give consumers a price edge.
