Samsung's high-end Blu-ray Disc player cancelled

Samsung was one of the first to market with a Blu-ray Disc player last year, but the South Korean company now appears to be pulling the plug on the release of its high-end player that was originally slated for this fall.

The Samsung BDP-2400 has been cancelled and will not be brought to market, according to WesleyTech. The report speculates that Samsung decided to cancel the player as it was unable to meet the October 31 deadline for BD 1.0 specifications.

The BDP-2400 isn’t the only machine to hit a release date snag, though, as Samsung’s dual-format HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc player is also reportedly pushed back to December.

The hybrid player, originally announced back in April, was expected for a release in October or November.

Samsung VP of Digital AV marketing Reid Sullivan said in a previous story, "Samsung is excited to introduce a new line of high-definition players that will enrich the theater experience at home... From the top-of-the-line BD-UP5000 to the entry BD-P1400 to the company's first home theater system with Blu-ray disc playback, Samsung offers a range of products at different price points to suit the growing consumer demand."

"A lot of people pay zero for the cellphone ... That's what it's worth." -- Apple Chief Operating Officer Timothy Cook
