Sony BDP-S770 Blu-ray Player Has 3D, Wi-Fi and Netflix Plus iPhone Remote Control AppS

Sony may have spearheaded Blu-ray, but besides the PS3, other companies have done more to push the format to become a great home-theater product. Today, Sony shows off the BDP-S770, a truly awesome Blu-ray player of its own.

This is not what you'd call a "me too" product—at the moment it has the hottest Blu-ray specs we have seen. Like other top models, it has integrated Wi-Fi, Bravia Internet Video Link (now with Netflix). Like the new crop of flagship players, it will support 3D movies. It even has DLNA support for serving up content across the home network (and maybe even apps like PlayOn, if I'm not mistaken).

But on top of all of that, it will support an iPhone/iPod Touch remote control app, which will be free in the App Store. Crazy, and restores some of my faith in a company that has fallen behind. The only thing we really don't know is pricing—and we won't know that until closer to launch this summer. By then, who knows, maybe others will have taken the iPhone-app angle too. For now, Sony can bask in the Blu awesomeness.

As you can expect, Sony has a ton of Blu-ray products coming down the line. I'm gonna let their spec list speak for itself:
