Samsung Announces World’s First Portable 3D Blu-ray Player, the BD-C8000

_DSC0177Samsung wants to beat everyone else to the punch when it comes to 3D entertainment products. Their latest, the BD-C8000 is the world’s first 3D capable Blu-ray player. The player sports a portable shell design with a 10.3″ screen. It also features Samsung Apps. Samsung claims that there are now over 100 Samsung Apps available. The BD-C8000 portable 3D Blu-ray player will retail for $499.95. And yes, that is kind of expensive, but considering it can also connect to your TV to work as a 3D Blu-ray player, it isn’t all that bad. That said, it is kind of disappointing that the 3D aspect of the player will only work when actually hooked up to a 3D TV.
