Samsung: Blu-ray Death Watch, T-Minus 5 Years
Pocket Link reports that Samsung has stated Blu-ray will only last for 5 year’s before being replaced by another format. Andy Griffiths of Samsung UK had this to say:
“I think it [Blu-ray] has 5 years left, I certainly wouldn’t give it 10″
Trying to essentially save himself he added [Commenting on Blu-ray in 08]:
“It’s going to be huge”, he told Pocket-lint. “We are heavily back-ordered at the moment.”
Samsung is instead putting faith of companies future in OLED technology, they claim the new technology is “read to rock” but is being held back due to costs. Griffith’s then went on to say OLED technology may make it’s debut in 2010.
