The Momitsu BDP-899 is shipping now, and its manufacturer claims that it is a “Region 0” player – capable of playing Blu-Ray discs from any region.  This player features BD-Live capabilities, upscaling to 1080p, can display HDMI Deep Color, and includes picture-in-picture functionality.

It is unclear as of yet whether this is a region code-free player, or if the user can set the region, either A, B, or C, with the input of a code on the remote.  This would be the first of its kind, aside from a single Blu-Ray player only available in Australia, to offer a region-free code, if it does have that capability. It can be purchased now from HKFlix.com for $350.
