Samsung announced Friday they'll be selling a disc player that will play either HD DVD or Blu-ray discs. Should be available by the end of the year.
"Consumers are hungry for more HD content but are currently confused about competing formats," Dongsoo Jun, executive vice president of the Digital AV Division at Samsung," said in a statement."Samsung's Duo HD player will allow consumers access to every HD movie title available regardless of the authoring format."
Samsung is not the first to announce it would offer a duo-format player. LG Electronics, also based in Korea, unveiled its device in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Still nothing that will play your Criterion Collection
of Blade Runner with the coffee stains on the sleeve, though. Sorry.
