The big guns at Toshiba have decided to tie their mobile sector and their brand new smart TVs together with a push for full integration via an app by the name of Toshiba MediaGuide. This application allows you to control your cable box or satellite receiver of one of either of the Toshiba L6200 or L7200 Cinema Series Smart TVs, and can be run on essentially any Android device, including the one we're seeing here - the Toshiba Excite X10 10-inch tablet. We also got a slightly closer look at the Toshiba L7200 Cinema Series LES Smart 3D TV if you'd like to take a peek at that, this post concentrating on the application itself.

There were no shortage of Smart TV concepts and final executions this year at CES 2012, and Toshiba came packing one of the most awesome selections to the Pepcom event in the L7200 Cinema Series LED Smart 3D TV, one massive customer.

Toshiba announced yesterday that the super-skinny AT200 tablet would be headed to the US mid-Q1 as the Excite X10, and we wasted no time in grabbing some more play with the 0.3-inch slate. First shown at IFA 2011 a few months back, the Excite X10 is just as appealing today: crisp edges, lashings of brushed aluminum and a great 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display add up to a tablet that feels as good in the hand as the on-screen graphics look.
