Panasonic just announced their first Blu-ray Disc player -- the DMB-BD10. The new player includes the EZ-Sync HDAVI (AKA, Panny's VIERA Link) control function allowing users to control any HDMI connected device from a single remote. The November release is meant to coincide with the US release of Panasonic's first 1080p plasma TVs. Pricing has yet to be finalized but they tell us it should drop this September for "less than $1500." Well, we should hope so considering the Samsung and Sony players are expected to come in at about a grand.
