Toshiba second gen HD DVD players delayed worldwide


Not wanting to be outdone by Sony with delay madness, Toshiba has delayed its second generation of HD DVD players. The second gen player was set to come out with HDMI 1.3, 1080p and sport a price tage of $999. That price sounds familiar .

From the article:

From AVS Forum: 

In Europe Toshiba has officially announced the delay, now anticipating a
"quantity of units" of the rebadged HD-E1
due in December and the HD-XE1
slated for 2007. Second gen hardware is generally expected to atone for the bug-ridden
sins of its predecessors, so hopefully a short delay now means avoiding a quick
later. In the meantime there's always the Xbox
360 HD DVD
add-on, or deciding which free
to get.
