Something might be missing under your tree this holiday. Don’t blame Santa; Samsung is the one to put on your naughty list.

Crunch Gear says that the company’s plan to delve into dual high-def DVD hardware is going to be a bit delayed. The BD-U5000 now has a December release date.

The company did originally say that the product would be out in Q4—it just looks like it could miss your Christmas list. However, Samsung hasn’t confirmed the news; maybe they want to avoid another traditional holiday shopping skirmish. 

The rumored price will be about $1,000. Check our original product announcement for all of the specs.
