Samsung axes BD-P2400, delays BD-UP5000 combo player

Just in case you haven't scooted on over to the HD side of things lately, we thought you should know that the $600 you've got stashed away for that forthcoming BD-P2400 Blu-ray player can now be used for something else. According to WesleyTech, the unit has been canned by Samsung, and if that wasn't enough, those excited about the BD-UP5000 HD DVD / Blu-ray combo player will be forced to exude even more patience until the thing actually ships in December. Granted, Sammy may use the extra time to update the specs a bit, but we feel your pain, regardless.
