Toshiba intros StorE TV+ media player, much moreBy Matthew DeCarlo
Toshiba's brought all sorts of goodies to IFA this year. We covered the company's Folio 100 Android tablet earlier, but the company has announced a ton of other products. The manufacturer has introduced its new StorE TV+ set-top box with a 2TB HDD and HD media streaming, as well as a new 3D-ready Blu-ray player, the BDX3100KB (PDF). Toshiba is preparing to ship the StorE TV+ to UK customers this month for £200 (roughly $307), while its 3D Blu-ray player will arrive in October for an unknown price.
The company's 3D-equipped Satellite A665-3DV notebook has received 2D to 3D conversion software and it can now stream to 3D TVs. That's available for $1,600. In other portable technology, Toshiba introduced a pair of Camileo 1080p camcorders as well as new 8GB-32GB SDHC memory cards capable of 95MB/s and 80MB/s reads/writes, and 4GB-16GB microSDHC cards with speeds of 40MB/s and 20MB/s. The cameras and memory cards will launch scattered through November, December and January.
Outside of new electronics, Toshiba recently issued a voluntary recall of its Satellite Pro T130, T135 and T135D 13.3-inch notebooks due to a possible fire hazard. There have been 129 reports of the systems overheating and melting the plastic around the power jack -- two of which resulted in minor burn injuries and another two caused minor property damage. Approximately 41,000 units worldwide are included in the recall, and you can find more information here about getting your machine repaired.
