Samsung Dual Format HD-DVD Blu-Ray Player

This site has moved to AVReport.com

As with cellphones, Samsung did not take sides in the Blu-Ray HD-DVD war. It got both licenses and will be bringing to market a player with dual format. Samsung is officially backing Blu-Ray but with current situation their decision to support both formats seems smart. I don't know how their solution will help calm down the war, since once a major manufacturer outside battling fronts steps in supporting both may mean that consumer is going to deal with more than one. This may hold true or false but only time will tell. My hope is that the best of two will survive and make our life easier.
Samsung unnamed DVD player will be available next year, according to company's head of consumer electronics.
