    Cool, thanks for the news! I wonder what kind of hardware is required to play those hi-def WM9 files smoothly. At $349 I wonder if it can play the Step Into Liquid preview with no problem.

    I'm very curious to see how they'll implement the WM9 feature because you need a license from the internet to play each movie. Because if they implement it in the current fashion (keys to the decoder), the security will probably get compromised.

    I think I'm more interested in the D-2 as everyone raved about the picture quality on the D-1 (although the interface and remote were supposedly horrible). It should be out soon (February) and the price seems reasonable at $250.
