The Nikkei Friday morning edition reports that Maxell (Hitachi) is also developing a 200GB Blu-ray disc.
TDK has anounced a 200GB Blu-ray disc already in August 2006.
200GB Blu-ray discs carry 8 layers of data on a single side. Standard Blu-ray discs have a capacity of 50GB.Hitachi thinks to be able to commercialize the optical technology in around 2009. Storage technology is currently not the barrier; it is more a question of having great content and devices that can leverage the fidelity of the content.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
