'Sony BDP-SX1: tragbarer und 3D-f\xe4higer Blu-ray-Player f\xfcr unterwegs'


'Da die gute alte DVD nun doch langsam durch Blu-ray abgel\xf6st wird, schien es f\xfcr Sony an der Zeit gewesen zu sein, das Format mobil zu machen \x96 und es auf die Stra\xdfe, ins Auto oder in den Urlaub zu bringen. Folgerichtig hat das Unternehmen...
