Toshiba to offer Blu-ray drives too?

Toshiba is one of the heavy HD DVD backers but it looks like they will be playing on safe by also offering Blu-ray drives in the future in case that technology gets way more popular than HD DVD.
Samsung yesterday announced that it will begin selling its first Blu-ray recorder for PC in the second quarter of this year. However, that drive is not developed by Samsung itself, but rather by TSST Korea. The name TSST is fairly unknown in the industry, however, if one splits up this abbreviation - Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology - it is apparent that this manufacturer isn't your typical backyard company.
More details can be read at The Inquirer.
