Samsung has officially released pricing on its 2010 line of Blu-ray players ranging from $179 to $499. The BD-C6900 (which won Best of Innovations at CES 2010) features built-in 3D playback, Netflix and Blockbuster apps, social widgets, and a slim design with transparent cover (so you can be mesmerized by the spinning of your Blu-ray discs). The BD-C6900 also comes with 1GB internal memory and 7.1 channel audio.
All the new BD players from Samsung boast quicker loading time and built-in WiFi (except for the entry-level C5500 which is wireless ready). Samsung did not release info on the BD-C8000 which is rumored to be a portable Blu-ray player with 10.1 inch LCD and 1GB built-in memory (enabling BD-Live).
