Is Samsung launching portable Blu-ray players tonight?

Samsung might be joining Panasonic in offering portable Blu-ray players if a Ben Lyons twoot is to be believed. Let me quote, “I just partnered w/ Samsung & they asked me 2 host an event in NYC tonight for their new line of portable Blue-Ray players that are amazing!” Interested? We are.

Samsung does have an event on the books tonight. It’s the Samsung 2010 Mobile PC Open House, which at least seems partly the proper venue to announce portable Blu-ray players. They are sort of like little PCs in design, but a home entertainment event seems a bit more appropriate for a Blu-ray product.

But lowly Ben Lyons wouldn’t make something like this up. He doesn’t even know the proper spelling of Blu-ray. The event is a few hours away so we don’t long to wait until we get a good look at these portable devices. That is, of course, if Ben Lyon isn’t making the whole thing up, which would actually be fairly humorous.
