Samsung cancels BDP-2400

In an unusual move for the electronics industry, Samsung has cancelled its BDP-2400 Blu-Ray player, which was to have shipped in the near future. No official reason for the cancellation has been given, but it does coincide with an impending October 31st deadline, which is the latest a manufacturer can release a player that only meets the Blu-Ray 1.0 profile. Everything following must meet Profile 1.1, which includes secondary audio and video decoders, and at least 256MB of persistent memory. No specifications for the BDP-2400 were known except that it was intended to be a high-end model.

Samsung is also reported to be delaying the BD-UP5000 (pictured), a hybrid player capable of playing both Blu-Ray and HD DVD discs. It should now ship in December, and is described has powerful enough to meet Profile 2.0, which requires network connectivity and 1GB of memory. [via WesleyTech]
