Toshiba fined $87m for LCD price fixing

Toshiba fined $87m for LCD price fixing

Back in December 2011, Samsung, Sharp, and a handful of other companies were fined $553 million over price-fixing claims. The companies reportedly met to fix LCD prices between 1999 and 2006, eventually being caught out by a investigation. At the time, LG Display, Toshiba, and AU Optronics Corp had yet to settle the case, but Toshiba was yesterday hit with a $87 million fine for its involvement.

Toshiba Computex 2012 Hands-on Round-Up

Toshiba Computex 2012 Hands-on Round-Up

This week there are more than just a couple of titans bringing the heat to the Windows world, Toshiba being one that dares to bring odd form factors to the table here in the summer of 2012. What we've seen from Toshiba this week includes one brand new tablet, a lovely All-in-one PC, and three notebooks - though one of them we're not quite what to call as its got a display that's so oddly shaped that it can't quite be called a notebook, but certainly isn't a tablet as it does have a keyboard attached.

Toshiba Portégé Z930 ultrabook hands-on

Ultrabooks have turned up in force at Computex 2012, and Toshiba isn't in the mood to be left out. The Toshiba Portégé Z930 - aka the Satellite Z930 - is a 13.3-inch ultrabook using Intel's 3rd Gen Core processors, and measuring a scant 8.3mm thick at its thinnest point.

Toshiba Satellite U840W 21:9 ultrabook and U840 hands-on

Toshiba Satellite U840W 21:9 ultrabook and U840 hands-on

Niche or nonsense? That's the question we find ourselves asking about the new Toshiba Satellite U840W, a 14.4-inch ultrabook with a bizarre 21:9 "cinemascope" widescreen display. Running at 1792 x 768 resolution, the U840W - to be known as the U845W in the US - comes preloaded with a custom Toshiba app that automatically scales two apps to run side-by-side.

Toshiba R9 Series hands-on

Toshiba R9 Series hands-on

Where would Toshiba be without a nice, sturdy mainstream range of somewhat business-centric notebooks? The Toshiba R9 Series may not have the fancy widescreen of the U840W, but the Ivy Bridge based 14-inch Tecra R940 and 15.6-inch Tecra R950, and their ultraportable 13.3-inch Portégé R930 sibling, would all go well in your briefcase.

Toshiba discontinuing netbooks in the US

Toshiba discontinuing netbooks in the US

Toshiba has confirmed that it will no longer be offering new netbook models in the US. The news isn't too surprising given the forthcoming onslaught of Ultrabooks, but it does further confirm the grim outlook for the ill-fated netbook market. Dell and Lenovo are already officially out of the netbook space, while Samsung and Sony haven't launched any new models this year either.

Toshiba AT300 Tegra 3 ICS tablet gets official

Toshiba has outed its latest Android tablet, the AT300, a 10.1-inch iPad rival running Ice Cream Sandwich on NVIDIA's quadcore Tegra 3 chipset and promising up to 10hrs runtime.

Toshiba 55XS5 offers 4K north of $9k

Toshiba 55XS5 offers 4K north of $9k

Maybe you’re not sold on this whole “OLED” thing. Maybe you think 1080p on a 55-inch screen looks gross. Why not future proof yourself and jump straight to the next big thing? Toshiba will be releasing a 55-inch TV in Japan next month with a 4K resolution, even if the content isn't quite with us yet. It’s not quite top of the line either, lacking 3D capabilities and useing edge-lit LEDs instead of the superior local dimming tech, but hey, it’s 4K.
