This from a UK web site dated Feb 24:
...The three models, DMR-EH50, DMR-ES30V and DMR-ES10, will be available in Japan on April 1 and DMR-EH60 and DMR-EH70V will be on the market on May 1, 2005.
The DIGA line-up now consists of nine models including the DMR-E700BD Blu-ray Disc (BD)/DVD recorder to offer a variety for consumers to select a model which best suits their needs.
SO I guess, the UK guys are saying that when it's complete, Panasonic will have nine models of DVD recorders. Blu-ray by Christmas? :)
To answer Bill1313s question, here are the descriptions from the site:
The DMR-EH60 has a 300 GB hard disk drive offering 532 hours in EP mode.
The DMR-EH50 has a 200 GB hard disk drive offering 355 hours in EP mode.
The DMR-EH70V features a 200 GB HDD and a VHS recorder.
I dunno about anyone else here, but my EH50 has a 100GB hard drive, not a 200. The UK versions of these must be slightly different.
I fully expect a version of each of these to be available in the US quite soon.
