Toshiba's totally tripped out HD DVD recorder, the RD-A1, will be pushed back a couple weeks, due to problems with securing the necessary parts to be able to have enough product for the earlier scheduled launch of July 14.

The RD-A1 will now launch on July 27 in Japan. There's still no word on if the recorder will be brought over to the US (though I think it's really just a question of when and not if). The price nears half a million yen ($3,460), so Toshiba's hope is only 10,000 units by the end of the year.This is the one area where Blu-ray really beat HD DVD to the punch, since BR recorders have been out for years in Japan and they're even available in the US. Since we'll still be waiting for HD DVD recorders, check out the HD-A1 player.
