DVD dominates, but Blu-ray Disc & HD DVD momentum is building

While DVD burners will continue to be the dominant volume product of the optical/removable storage market until 2011, due to commodity prices and almost universal compatibility, next-generation drives are ramping up, according to IDC. Significant momentum is building behind the blue laser formats, HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc (BD).

The story is too old to be commented.

So we could see a format war up till 09-10'....

By 2010 HVD should be coming to market.
(start of another next gen format war)

Dont you think that would be a bit soon? I mean DVD lived for at least 10 years and is still dominating. If there is a winner between BD and HD, it will live until 2012 or something and then it will be dramaticly challenged by Digital Distrubution and by 2020, we was see the next next-gen format and quality (HVD).
