sharp-bd-hdw20-blu-ray-recorder(2).jpgPioneer, maker of the famed KURO-brand plasma TV's, plans to have Blu-ray recorders on Japanese shelves before this year's holiday shopping season followed by overseas launches hopefully early next year. Pioneer will team up with Sharp Electronics, a big stakeholder in Pioneer and already an experienced maker of Blu-ray recorders. No prices or details regarding the new model or models have been released, but being from Pioneer we expect something impressive.
