Tapestry 300r Holographic Media Coming

Not too long ago I posted about the Tapestry unit.  At that time I wasn’t sure when production units would be available.  Tapestry has now announced that the Tapestry 300r Backup device will be available in the 4th quarter of 2007.  They have also announced the pricing on these bad boys.  Let’s just say that home users won’t be buying these things anytime soon.

The Tapestry 300r drive will begin selling at $18,000 and media will cost $180.  Obviously, the product is initially aimed at high end corporate clients.  But I’m sure that price will come down and I’m hoping that one day I will be able to get one of these bad boys.  The third generation is roadmapped to be able to store 1.5 TB of storage and write at 120 Mb/s.  That makes me drool.
