Samsung Electronics, a major maker of consumer electronics, said that it would not release its highly-anticipated player that can playback both next-generation DVD standards – Blu-ray and HD DVD. The company did not explain the reasons for the decision.

“Samsung is going all-out for Blu-ray. We were the first one to market the Blu-ray player,”David Steel, vice president of Samsung Electronics, is reported to have said in an interview with The Korea Times news-paper. He also added that Steel also said that Samsung had no plan to develop HD-DVD players or combo devices, which support both the Blu-ray and HD-DVD platforms.
