Questions about upcoming drives

I currently have a 32x12x40 Lite-On drive, and I was looking to upgrade it so I could have faster rewritable speeds.

I was eyeing the 52x24x52, but now I’ve read that Lite-On is coming out with a new drive, 52x32x52.

Is there any truth to that, and if so, when do these drives come out?

A number of CDRW software companies have posted support for future CD writers and 52326S is among the list, so you can safely buy the 52246S now and do a firmware upgrade to 52326S later. has the best price for the 52246S Retail btw, $48 + $6 s/h. The new model willl most like come out in a month or two.
