The DMP-BDT100, Panasonic's latest Blu-ray player, is a smaller and faster unit, designed for a release later this year. How much smaller?  According to Panasonic's unnecessarily precise press release the BDT100 is 1-17/32 inches smaller than the BDT350.  Apparently that last thirty-second of an inch is the clincher.

As a player it does just about everything you'd expect.  It plays Blu-ray discs as well as 3D Blu-rays.  "The DMP-BDT100 reproduces the ultimate in 3D images," says Panasonic.  It also upscales standard DVDs up to 1080p.  

You'll get the usual assortment of internet streaming features baked in too.  You can grab videos from Netflix and Amazon, music from Pandora and incessant chatter from Twitter.  The BDT100 is compatible with Panasonic's wireless adapter, but the adapter isn't included.

The BDT100 also gets you a nice quick load speed of just a half a second.  That's a nice improvement from the days when a minute looked good. Pricing and availability are unknown at the moment, but it's assumed that the BDT100 will priced lower than Panasonic's current players.
