LG plans hybrid HD-DVD/Blu-ray player
CE Pro reports that LG has dropped its upcoming BD199 set-top Blu-Ray player in favor of a new Blu-Ray/HD-DVD hybrid player. The story cites a memo sent by LG consumer electronics sales VP Bob Perry, which reportedly states that the hybrid player is scheduled for a late summer/early fall release. This is good news, as most users are likely not looking forward to the prospect of having to buy two separate players for HD-DVD and Blu-ray media. Let's hope other player manufacturers follow suit. Thanks to DailyTech for the tip.
