Toshiba sets launch date for HD DVD recorder

Japanese electronics maker Toshiba said on Thursday it would launch the next-generation, high-definition optical disk recorder based on the HD DVD format on July 14 in Japan.

Toshiba expects the world’s first HD DVD recorder, equipped with a hard disk drive, to sell for 398,000 yen ($3,466).

…YOW. I hope that comes with lube. (I know, early adopter tax, BD recorders aren’t any better.)
