Samsung is Prepping a 23mm Ultra-Thin 3D Blu-ray Player

Samsung says it's the thinnest 3D player in the world.

If there's one thing the folks at Samsung love more than 3D - and they sure do love 3D - it's thin electronics (1D?). They constantly push for the slimmest TVs, phones, computers, and even Blu-ray players.

At this year's Consumer Electronics show it seems Samsung will be unveiling their thinnest yet, coming in at just 23mm, or just under an inch. It's not just any player either, Samsung 's thin new beauty is a 3D player.

One point of interest is that Samsung's new player is side-loading according to pictures released by the company. While it might help with the slim design, that might bode ill for the functionality of the player.

Sadly, that's all we know about the new player for now. Further details, pricing and launch information are all expected at CES in early January.
