Lastly, BD-D6500 comes with the same specs as the BD-D6700 but only one HDMI.

Samsung also mentions remote control Apps for iPhone / iPod and Android. However, they did not clarify if this feature will be supported by all four players.

All four Blu-ray players are expected to hit store in the first half of 2011, Samsung says. Prices TBA.
