Toshiba: "no plans" to adopt Blu-ray

In the Q&A session following Toshiba's HD DVD dumping event in Japan, Atsutoshi Nishida, President and CEO of Toshiba Corporation made a bit of a surprise announcement.

Understandable since the announcement of the discontinuation of HDDVD is too long ago. But I expect them to eventually jump aboard to help them recoup losses that HDDVD will bring them.

I doubt they will pass up an opportunity to to make money after all, thats what Corporations exist to do

I seem to remember a headline that said:

Toshiba, No Plan to Drop HD DVD.

Now they are saying No Plan to (who cares what the rest is. If there is money in it they will do it.)

lol there is no way that Toshiba is waiting for DD to hit mainstream. Never quite understood why a hardware manufacturer like Toshiba would want DD anyway... oh wait, they wouldnt.

I hate how companies always use the "No Plans" phrase. Come on, regardless if things were planned or not, if it's bound to happen it will happen. Kind of Sony with "No plans for a price drop" and then boom, Dropped in $100. (Not to say it's a bad thing)

Toshiba does not need to bring their failures over the highly successful Blu-Ray Disc format.
