Nothing in particular-and certainly no "insider" information. But IMHO if it was easy to create a Profile 1.1 player, it would have already been done. The Broadcom 7440 SoC (system-on-a-chip) processor in the Samsung was announced
almost a year ago, and I assume
that the Blu-ray standards for the software are set, so Samsung has already had awhile to work out the bugs-yet the necessary firmware is apparently still delayed until next year
? CE manufacturers announce their intentions
all of the time, and then change their plans based on the current realities. Do you expect to see the promised BDP2400 from Samsung anytime soon?
I'm just more of a believe-it-when-it-happens kind of guy. I have great hopes
for the BD-UP5000, it sounds like a super player- that's why I'm followimg the threads. Sorry to come across as negative, but it seems a little premature to announce Profile 1.1 with exclamation marks, IMHO.
