It doesn't look good that Toshiba is going to produce a second generation HD DVD player before the end of the year. Toshiba's VP of marketing, Jodi Sally, denied any second-gen player this year to Video Business. We still hold a belief that at CES '07, the Toshiba booth will be filled with the next version of their HD DVD players. Their current players are selling well so why would they want to hurt that by announcing a second-gen device? Many people support the HD DVD camp but if there was another device announced, they would simply wait till that one was released instead of buying the current one.
Are you waiting for the second-gen devices before you jump on the HD DVD/Blu-ray bandwagon?
