    5 Product Innovations From CEATEC 2011 In Japan (Video Gallery)

    Truth be told, I wasn’t very impressed with what electronics makers showed at the CEATEC 2011 tech exhibition – especially because a lot of the new products were “leaked” to the Japanese press before the event started. However, here are a total of five of the coolest innovations Japanese companies showed at CEATEC 2011 in video form, delivered from our friends at Diginfo… Read More

    You have an HDD/Blu-ray recorder connected to your TV but never enough space on it? Then Toshiba’s REGZA DBR-M190 might do the trick for you (if you live in Japan, at least).

The DBR-M190 boasts no less than 5TB of storage: according to Toshiba, 4TB are reserved for… Read More

    If you thought Sharp’s 4K TV we’ve shown you last week is impressive, think again. Toshiba today unveiled a 55-inch LCD that boasts the same resolution (3,840×2,160 pixels, 4x full HD) but can also display pictures in 3D – no glasses required.

  • Hands-On With The Toshiba Thrive 7″ Tablet

    Hands-On With The Toshiba Thrive 7″ Tablet

    Toshiba’s entrance into the Android tablet market was a pretty good one — Android 3.1 Honeycomb, a wide array of connectivity ports, and interchangeable batteries. But all those ports coupled with a 10-inch form factor made for quite the hefty slate. Personally, I tend to favor the 7 to 8-inch tablet category, which is why I was so pleased to get a peek at Toshiba’s latest… Read More

    Toshiba Announces Updated Kid-Friendly Laptop

    If ever there was an audience for a silver and neon green laptop, kids would be it (and also maybe people who like lime green a lot). That said, Toshiba has just launched its updated kid-friendly laptop: the Satellite L735D. Toshiba and Best Buy worked on this one together, and did quite a bit of research to make sure that the little ones were getting what they wanted. Which was a lot of… Read More

    Toshiba Outs Monstrous 55″ 4K, Glasses-Free 3D TV With Facial Recognition

    This TV is a beast. It’s called the ZL2, and to be honest it’s the only TV I actually have gadget envy for right now. The rest of the 3D TVs out there rely on end-of-life active shutter glasses or immature polarized 3D, but this monster is going straight to the lenticular lenslets. This technique involves a layer of tiny lenses that direct the light in the direction of the viewer… Read More

    Toshiba Unveils The Thinnest Honeycomb Tablet Yet, The 7.7mm-thick AT200

Toshiba claims that the battery is good for “eight hours of video consumption.” The… Read More

  • Leaked! Toshiba To Release Powerful, Ultra Thin Android Tablet At IFA

    Leaked! Toshiba To Release Powerful, Ultra Thin Android Tablet At IFA

    The Toshiba Thrive isn’t exactly a good-looking Android tablet. Sure, it has plenty of ports, a removable battery, and a low price, but it’s also bulky and feels of cheap plastic. Sans the Toshiba logo, it feels and looks just like a random Chinese rip-off. But have no fear, Toshiba fans! Per a pre-IFA leak, there’s a new tablet coming and it’s every bit as sexy as the… Read More

Probably even… Read More
