Samsung Dual Player May- or May Not- Arrive by Christmas
Will Samsung’s new dual-format hi-def DVD player be out in time for Christmas? There are conflicting reports.
Samsung said last week, according to PC World, that the BD-UP500 player is scheduled to appear in mid-December, in time for Christmas but late for Hanukkah, which begins this week.
But the blog FormatWarCentral reported Monday that the player will miss the holidays altogether and instead make its debut in January. FormatWarCentral cited the product’s page on Amazon.com, which lists its release date as Jan. 15, 2008. Amazon lists the product’s price as $799.99.
