At an evening event the day before CES' official press day, Toshiba has unveiled a range of new TVs and laptops, including 4K and ultrabook models, as well as something called a Media Box. OK, it's a Blu-ray player.
LAS VEGAS--Toshiba is known primarily for TVs, laptops, and home theater gear, and at a pre-CES event tonight at the Mandalay Bay hotel, it trotted out its latest innovations in each category.
One of the most remarkable is the L9300 series of TVs, which marks the company's first U.S. foray into 4K TV and presages what are sure to be many more 4K TV announcements in the next few days at the show -- stupid as they may be. Shipping this summer, the series will be available in 58-, 65- and 84-inch sizes. Pricing was not disclosed, but if LG and Sony's current pricing of around 20 grand for their 84-inch 4K sets is any indication, the L9300 won't be cheap. Check out our full writeup for more on the Toshiba L9300.
Also in the TV sphere was something called "Cloud TV" that, as far as I can tell, is just a buzzword-ified way to talk about new Smart TV features. And yes, those Media Boxes are just Blu-ray players with Cloud TV.
