Toshiba DX1215 All-in-One PC

After focusing exclusively on laptops since 2001, Toshiba has launched its first desktop PC for the U.S. market in 10 years. Already on sale in Japan since last summer as the Dynabook Qosmio DX, the company’s first all-in-one PC for the U.S. market will be known as the DX1215 when it goes on sale next month. Designed as an all-purpose entertainment hub, the unit features a 21.5-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution touchscreen display, HDMI in port, and premium speakers that can be used even when the PC is off thanks to Toshiba’s Sleep & Music mode.  Read More

Toshiba Mobile Display (TMD) has unveiled a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 pixel resolution touchscreen LCD panel where the capacitive multi-touch input functionality is integrated into the liquid crystal cell. The company says that this will allow the production of touch-enabled displays without having to add an additional touch panel to the LCD during the manufacturing process. The technology is initially headed for vehicle-mounted and industrial applications but could well lead to the development of more compact mobile products.  Read More

As our use of mobile technology increases, so does our demand for more built-in device storage capacity in smaller and smaller form factors. Only a few weeks have passed since Intel began using its 25 nanometer (nm) NAND flash memory in its 320 series SSD storage solutions and just days since the company joined with Micron Technology to announce the breakthrough 20nm process technology. Now SanDisk and Toshiba have developed and fabricated NAND flash memory modules with 19nm process technology.  Read More

Toshiba has launched five new self-encrypting hard drives which include automatic data inv...

The accidental loss or deliberate theft of notebooks with drives full of sensitive information is not just the cause of red faces (or worse) for government or military officials around the globe, as the world of business has also been touched by such security breaches. Self-encrypting drives have done much to help lock down important files, but Toshiba has gone a step further by developing a technology that securely erases data rather than let it fall into unauthorized hands. Originally announced last August, Wipe Technology has now been incorporated into a new range of self-encrypting hard drives which will go into mass production at the end of June.  Read More

Toshiba's new flagship 55ZL1 HDTV powered by a new CEVO-ENGINE

Toshiba has announced details and a release date for its new flagship 55ZL1 HDTV. The new model will be the first to be powered by a new CEVO-ENGINE, which replaces the company's Cell-powered models. The CEVO-ENGINE is essentially a stack of Cell multicore processors in the form of a seven-core processing unit that provides the processing grunt for such features as 2D to 3D conversion, 3D depth control, HDD video recording, Auto Calibration, and a face recognition feature that will switch to your personal settings after identifying you using the 55ZL1's integrated camera.  Read More

Thanks to DisplayLink technology, Toshiba's new 14-inch Mobile Monitor is able to get its ...

Walk into any graphic or game design studio, trading center or media authoring/editing business and you'll more than likely see some sort of multi-display workstation setup. I too have found that expanding display real estate over more than one screen can be very useful, but when thinking about such things for my notebook, I'm kind of limited to integrated screen-and-a-half or full dual-screen options. Happily, Toshiba's Digital Products Division is now offering another solution – a 14-inch Mobile Monitor that gets its power and video feed from one USB cable.  Read More

The Toshiba Tablet is just 0.6-inch thin

Toshiba has been showing off a preview model of its as-yet-unnamed next generation Android Tablet computer at this year's CES and we strolled over for a closer look. The Tegra 2-powered, high resolution, multi-touch device features both a front and rear cameras, technology which gives standard def video a color, contrast and sharpness boost, and Wireless-N connectivity. There's also user access to the onboard Li-ion battery for any necessary swapouts and changeable outer covers for some welcome personalization.  Read More

Toshiba has slammed a pair of Harman/Kardon speakers into its new mini NB520 netbook, whic...

Research has shown that over 80 percent of netbook owners believe that good sound is important, yet I think it's fair to say that most netbook speakers are not really very good – offering about the same audio output quality as a smartphone. Toshiba has revealed that its new mini NB520 netbook sports a pair of Harman/Kardon speakers and Dolby Advanced Audio technology, to give users the kind of rich audio experience usually reserved for much bigger devices.  Read More

Toshiba has just completed the installation of a demonstration modular data center on the outskirts of Tokyo, signaling its entry into the emerging market. Rather than housing racks of data servers in dedicated buildings, the modular approach allows for the relatively quick construction of units housed in steel framed containers, which can be stacked to increase capacity without encroaching too much on the surrounding environment. In addition to reducing costs, Toshiba claims that its solution also requires less power to operate.  Read More
