Momitsu is releasing perhaps the first region-free standalone Blu-ray 2.0 player. The BDP-899 can play DVDs and Blu-ray discs that have been purchased anywhere. The player is BD-Live ready, has HDMI Deep Color and upscales DVDs to 1080p HD. Playing back MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, Xvid, MP4 HD, WMV9, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, BMP, JPEG2000 and GIF formats, details are sketchy as to whether it is already region-free or if a code must be entered to accomplish the task. The BDP-899 is available for $349.99.
