Toshiba to Launch 2160p TV with Built-in BD and Cell Processor

 Toshiba has confirmed that they are close to launching its flagship LED TV, which will uniquely include the 64-bit Cell processor used in Sony's PS3. The "Cell Regza" will have a panel resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. It will include a Blu-ray player and a 1TB recorder. Toshiba has confirmed that the Cell Regza will be on display at the CES show in January 2010.

Masaaki Oosumi, president of Toshiba's Digital Media Network Company, said that this new TV "brings together Toshiba imaging, storage and network technologies". He added, "it will be Toshiba's flagship model in the true sense. It is the ultimate entertainment machine that brings more excitement than a movie in a theatre. I would like to let users experience the same sensation as they felt by watching a color TV for the first time."

Toshiba will announce the specifications of the Cell TV within days, Oosumi said. It will be first available in Japan in December 2009. As for the pricing, he just said that it will be "fairly expensive".

Cool, sure. Major overkill? Definitely.
