200 GB optical drive

Ricoh said that it will release a 200GB optical drive by 2008, according to today's Nihon Keizai Shimbun.
The technology will use eight layers rather than the two promised by Sony's Blu-ray and Toshiba's HD tech.
But - and here's the rub - the optical head uses a similar design to HD and Blu-ray, so Ricoh's tech will be able to work with these two competing camps.
But hey Maxell is releasing a 1.6 TB holographic 'floppy' right? So who needs a 200GB HD DVD?
