Toshiba applies to the Blu-ray association – Sony says LMAO
Toshiba had bet a lot on HD-DVD, pegging it as the next generation optical media. It released a slew of devices supporting HD-DVD but it could not cope up with the rising popularity of Blu-Ray and finally pulled the plug on HD-DVD early last year. Toshiba not wanting to miss the next-gen optical media bus has applied to the Blu-Ray association and has plans to release a Blu-ray player and Blu-Ray drive for its notebook and desktop PC’s by this year.
