Is there any word on an EU release date yet?
I don't know. I only know about the US market.
Do you know what software will be bundled with the 2207?
Its bundled with CyberLink software. It has the same software as the BDR-XD04:
PowerDDVD 10 BD3D - Blu-ray 3D supported
All 3 support BDXL. So you can edit your home movies, author them to a BDXL disc, playback that disc with PowerDVD, and back it up with Power2Go.
As for drive versions, chef did a good job describing the differences.
Note that that BDR-207M and BDR-207 will not be sold in the US market this time around.
The BDR-207DBK is not bundled with software and is sold in a bulk (white) box.
The BDR-2207 is bundled with CyberLink software in a retail box.
