We mentioned Samsung’s proposed dual HD player back in April, with a shipping date of ‘late 2007 initially mentioned. That still looks to be the case, according to new reports.
The hybrid player is called the Samsung BD-UP5000. Speaking at an IFA preparation event, a spokesman for Samsung said that it will ship in October or November. The player itself will be on display at IFA 2007 – so expect a hands-on from the Tech Digest team there in August.
And then get saving – you should have plenty of time, as that launch date is probably a US one. The UK will see it early 2008 at a guess.
