Samsung Electronics Focusing More on Blu-ray Format

Samsung Electronics will concentrate its ongoing efforts to strengthen Blu-ray products since Toshiba virtually pulled the plug on its HD DVD products.
Samsung is expected to show more interests in Blu-ray products than rival HD DVDs
the company said on Sunday. Samsung officials have declined to further comment. The Korean electronics firm has currently been developing dual-format Blu-ray and HD DVD movie players such as the UP5000, but according to experts it will now focus on Blu-ray only with no plans to phase out any combo players.
Samsung, which has been adopting a dual-strategy for both Blu-ray and HD DVD products, is likely to cut the HD DVD portion because of aggressive marketing and closer industry connections over the technology

Samsung makes some great DLP as well as LCD and Plasma TVs (albeit, a little high on their LCD/Plasmas)
