HD DVD-R is the writable disc variant of HD DVD, expected to be shipping in 2006 with a single-layer capacity of 15GB. Currently, HD DVD-R has slower write speeds than the competing BD-R format (12x vs 14x) and lower storage capacity.
Pricing of HD DVD devices and blank media is yet to be released (September, 2006), but it is expected that devices will be available at a lower price-point than the competing Blu-ray Disc format.
