Samsung debuted the world's first 3D-capable Blu-ray player today, but don't get too excited about relaxing to a 3D movie on a long flight. The BD-C8000 doesn't offer 3D on-the-go, just when hooked up to a 3DTV.
That doesn't mean it's not a handy little player on its own right; its plays 1080p on that 10.3-inch screen, has built-in Wi-Fi and HDMI, and can access Samsung Apps if you're so inclined. And when you're not traveling, the BD-C8000 can handle 3D playback when it's hooked up to a 3DTV and you're wearing the requisite 3D glasses.
One point of concern: the battery life is listed at three hours—which almost certainly means a decent amount less. So while you've probably got enough juice for a decent-length flick, don't bank on making it through The Godfather: Part II. It's available now for $500, along with the BD-C7900 (featuring two HDMI outputs), BD-C6800, and BD-C5900, all home 3D Blu-ray players priced between $230 and $400.
Samsung's also adding to their home theater line-up, leading with the HT-C9950W—7.1 channel 3D surround sound, ipod/iphone dock, two HDMI inputs, a wireless dongle, and a "premium volume wheel"—which will be available in October for $1800. It's meant as a companion piece to that super-slim C9000 LED TV, but you go right ahead and put whatever TV on it you want.
