Furthermore, the OPPO BD player probably won't be out this summer at all. I haven't been able to find anything official about this. It is funny how rumors get started and then info gets misinterpreted.
The original Engadget article didn't say it would be released in the summer. It only said "According to the VP of product development, the company is "very early" in their development cycle, and we should EXPECT MORE DETAILS sometime this summer." http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/02/20...lu-ray-player/
If they are very early in the product development cycle, (although they may release more information by summer) the actual product probably won't be available for purchase for at least a year or longer. No doubt it will be a very good player at a very competitive price, but I am not going to hold my breath.
