If you like hanging things on your walls you'll be stoked by the news that Samsung has launched the world's first wall-mountable Blu-ray player, the BD-P4600.

It's a sleek, piano black unit (only 1.5in thick), which gives it the honour of being the world's thinnest Blu-ray player. It also comes complete with a WiFi USB dongle so you can hook it up to your home network.

If that's just too way out for you, Samsung has also unveiled a more traditional-looking deck in the form of the BD-P3600. Both devices have dual USB inputs and 1GB of internal Flash Memory.

Both disc spinners can bitstream or internally decode high-definition audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, with the BD-P3600 benefitting from a set of eight-channel analogue outputs.
