Toshiba Gets Into Blu-ray
More than a year after Toshiba abandoned the HD DVD format, the company is finally embracing the format that put it out of business. The manufacturer will release its first Blu-ray Disc player by the end of the year. Toshiba confirmed the move to PCWorld, following reports over the weekend in the Japanese Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper.
Toshiba gave up on the format war in early 2008, after Hollywood support for Blu-ray tipped the scale in the favor of the Sony market.
