Speaking to Pocket-Lint, Samsung UK’s director of consumer electronics Andy Griffiths stated: I think it Blu-Ray has five years left – I certainly wouldn’t give it 10. Still, it’s going to be huge. We are heavily back-ordered at the moment.”
Griffiths added that 2008 will, in his opinion, be the year of Blu-Ray.
