Samsung delays BD-UP5000 Duo HD player Although they have yet to confirm or deny the reports, it appears Samsung is canceling production of its high end Blu-ray player, the BDP-2400 and delaying their dual HD player, the much awaited BD-UP5000.
The reports, corroborated by retailers, speculate that the company canceled the player because it was "unable to meet the October 31 deadline for BD 1.0 specifications."

The BD-UP5000, originally scheduled for an October release however will not be cancelled but is delayed until at least December.

Samsung will be the second manufacturer to release a dual HD player, following the somewhat popular but expensive LG BH100.
