Sony Blu-Ray Player Ready

Sony has announced that its first dedicated Blu-Ray player, the BDP-S1, is now available. The flagship for the company's championed disc format, the BDP-S1 is aimed at high-end movie enthusiasts and is capable of not only displaying the full 1080p resolution of Blu-Ray movies when attached through HDMI, but also of upscaling existing DVD movies to the same resolution. Playback of MP3 music and JPEG photos from DVDs is also supported. Pricing is set at $1,000.

Sony's launch comes after a series of publicized delays as the electronics maker suffered from part shortages and other technical problems, especially with the advent of the company's newly launched PlayStation 3 and its use of Blu-Ray for removable storage.
