Default Sharp $100 Blu Ray Player?

I read on the DVD Review web site that Sharp will bring out a Blu Ray/HD Player for about $100. Does anybody know anything about that?

they did actually announce this, I can't remember where i read it, but it's supposed to be the world's smaller player and play all formats and $100 is what the press release said.

If it is true I will buy one.
Right now I have a PS3 (I don't play videogames, but it is a great Blu ray player) and a A-2. I like both formats and I would love it if both could live side by side.

$100 for a multi-format ? I doubt it, but it's due for release this month, so we will have to wait and see for the price.

I need to know when this dual format player will be out to buy. The news article was dated 5/29/07 so that would make the release this month, June.

400 ? You can get the Toshiba E1 for 230.

But why go with the lower end model when i got a 1080p projector,might as well buy the xe1 with full upscaling aswell.

But then again im in no hurry at supporting both formats and disc choice isnt that great at the moment without double dipping.
Got 4 blu ray films at the min(double dipped) for sampleing and and couple more on order.
Curently have over 1000 standard dvds and the ps3 does a good job of upscaling them. Better than the 720p(benq pe8700E) projector i used to upscale from the pc with.
But i do have a 97 inch screen so the differance is noticable.
