Toshiba to launch world's first HD DVD recorder

Here's some cool news for the HD buffs out there:

Toshiba Corp. said it planned the launch of the first next-generation, high-definition optical disc recorder based on the HD DVD format on July 14 in Japan as it intensifies competition with rival Blu-ray products.

Toshiba, which already debuted the world's first HD DVD player in March, expects the new recorder, equipped with a 1 terabyte hard disk, to sell for 398,000 yen ($3,466).

Toshiba is a leading proponent of next-generation HD DVD optical disk technology, which competes with the Blu-ray standard promoted by Sony Corp. and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., a maker of Panasonic brand electronics.

Yep, just a tad expensive but once the first HD recorder hits the market, we should see a few wallet-friendly models coming out. We'll keep you posted.
