Samsung has just announced that it will be releasing its first Blu-ray player, the BD-P1000, ‘early in Q4’ this year. That would suggest sometime in October. Might make a nice match with the Sony projector mentioned below.
Samsung says it has twin lasers in the same head so that it will also read CDs and the various DVD formats. It also says it will do 1080p output, and provide upscaling of DVDs to the same resolution.
No pricing info yet.
