Here it is from CNET as of 1-6-10:
Key step-up features of the Samsung BD-C6500:
15-second disc load; 15-second boot-up
Meets Energy Star 4.0 guidelines, but doesn't have the same low power consumption as the BD-C5500
No release date or pricing announced
Editors's note: This section has been updated with more information about Samsung Apps
Internet@TV and Samsung Apps are Samsung's new proprietary content portals for home theater products. As of now, it's not perfectly clear exactly how it will work; Samsung says that the first free apps will launch in the spring, with premium apps following in the summer. When we talked to a Samsung rep at the booth, he said that standards services like Netflix, Pandora and Vudu would all be free; he used Tetris as an example of something that would be a premium app. We get the feeling that a lot of the particulars still have to be worked out.
Overall, there's not much info released about these players, although we're happy to see that the step-up BD-C6500 has built-in Wi-Fi, a step-up over last year's BD-P3600. We'll update this post as we get more information from Samsung.
