Toshiba stands firm .. for now

It's hard to see Toshiba remaining steadfast in its support of the HD TV DVD format in the wake of Warner Bros. announcement abandoning it.
The Associated Press reported Toshiba officials were caught by surprise, but were gathering their forces for now.
But a quote from the statement issued by Toshiba is telling.
"We are currently discussing the potential impact of this announcement with the other HD DVD partner companies and evaluating next steps."
Next steps as in dropping HD TV? It would be a serious failure for Toshiba.
But don't be surprised if they don't go without a fight.
