Samsung, one of the main backers of the Blu-ray format, says it will release a new player this year which plays both HD DVD and Blu-ray discs.

This device, the Samsung BD-UP5000 player, should be available before the end of this year in the U.S. In Europe it will be available a bit sooner, a Samsung spokesman said it would be "in a few months", but an exact release date isn't known.

Pricing details about the BD-UP5000 unit are also unavailable.
