Default toshiba HD-D3 versus HD-A3?

what is the difference between Toshiba's HD-D3 and HD-A3? Futureshop has a sale for both of the machines, but HD-D3 costs 99 dollars, while HD-A3 is 199.
Thanks for your help

Down here in the states, the D3 is the model sold at membership stores (like Costco, Sam's Club) and is identical to the A3, except an HDMI cable is included in the box with for the D-3. Should be the same in Canada. I'd go for the D-3.

I believe their listing for the HD-A3 player on boxing day was in error - they printed a retraction saying it should have been listed as HD-D3.

Interestingly, Best Buy had the HD-D3 listed at $199, however Future Shop had it listed for $99. I went to Best Buy on a hunch they would honour the Future Shop price and was correct!

They had a ton of HD-D3's at Best Buy here in Calgary that no one stood in line for!

I imagine that these went very quickly at Future Shop!

What a great deal - $99 for 7 HD-DVD movies (ok +$10 shipping) is already a steal, so you are essentially getting the player for free!

I should also mention that my HD-D3 DID NOT come with an HDMI cable!

(not a big deal since decent HDMI cables are only $5 at Monoprice.com)

Anyway I'd be curious to see what pourcentage of those will be returned since it's been less then a month.
