, the director of consumer electronics at Samsung UK has revealed a belief that the Blu-ray format will last only for another five years before it is replaced by something else.
He went on to say there is no chance that it will have 10 more years.
To quote: Samsung has said that it sees the Blu-ray format only lasting a further 5 years before it is replaced by another format or technology.
"I think it [Blu-ray] has 5 years left, I certainly wouldn't give it 10", Andy Griffiths, director of consumer electronics at Samsung UK told Pocket-lint in an interview.
Hoping to capitalise before it's too late, Griffiths believes that 2008 is the format's year.
"It's going to be huge", he told Pocket-lint. "We are heavily back-ordered at the moment."
