Gizmondo: Rumours have begun circulating that Panasonic is going to produce a dual HD DVD/Blu-ray player next year.
Sources say that Panasonic is doing this to protect itself, as the next-generation DVD wars aren’t close to being resolved, and they don’t want all their next-generation eggs in one next-generation basket, no matter how Blu that basket may be.
Also, it’s rumored that Sony will be making one of these as well, but this is even more rumory than the Panasonic rumor. Best to ‘believe it when you see it’, since Sony’s not one to throw in the towel and a hybrid drive would be somewhat of a concession.
We’ll keep you posted.
