I would think they would have to be working with the DVD Forum if they plan to be fully functional with HDi-so do we think this is not a surprise to the DVD forum? Might be for the BD group.
Anyway, I have a question to the HD DVD and BD insiders on the insiders thread regarding the veracity of this news. I wonder if anyone will take it on?
Here is Amir's response (still waiting from the BD insiders):

Is this true that Samsung will deliver a Universal Player for both formats in July or is this a Aprils Fools joke? From what I understand it will be HDi compliant so it would be able to display the HD DVD logo. Also, I understand that it is supposed to deliver 1080p/24 BD only but 1080p for both BD and HD DVD.
Are we being joshed?
I can' t comment on anything specific regarding Samsung. I can say as I have in the past that there will be more companies beyond LG building dual format players. When and who they are I can't say.
