Samsung BD-P1400

Samsung’s third generation Blu-ray player the Samsung BD-P1400 is set to make it’s grand debut on August 31st in Berlin at the 2007 IFA. The BD-P1400 is rumored , but not confirmed to support Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD and Dolby True HD, along with a built in Ethernet port.
New required standards for Blu-ray players released after October this year add some extra features to the list, such as support for picture-in-picture dual streams, a minimum of 256mb ram, or 1gb ram if the player has an Ethernet port, used for extra internet content.
No release date or price is known for the Samsung BD-P1400 yet, but we suspect it should retail for less than $499 as both the Sony BDP-S300 and PlayStation 3 (blu-ray capable) are currently available for $499.

Update: The Samsung DP-P1400 will be avaliable for $549 in September, along with the Samsung BD-P2400 in October for $649.  You can also view the Samsung BD-P1400 Review.
