"As we count the days (hours?) till the inevitable official announcement from Toshiba that it plans to 'review its strategy' (read: can the ailing HD DVD format be put out of its misery) yet another analyst wades in with comment.
Gartner's principal research analyst Paul O'Donovan told TechRadar today: "Gartner anticipates Toshiba will finish with HD DVD within the next couple of weeks. Its share price has risen on the basis that the rumours are strong that it will pull out sooner rather than later. If it delays then the stock will drop very quickly."
