Toshiba introduces Smart TV platform for Asian users

by Gareth Mankoo

Toshiba Places comes to Asia with Smart TVs and a flurry of apps to sweeten the entire experience. The applications will be categorized as Video Place (Video On Demand with online streaming services such as YouTube), Music Place (with Internet radio stations), Social Place (with Facebook and Twitter interactivity), News Place (with up-to-date news bytes) and Game Place (for all those who’d need to unwind). Yet, these apps are expected in the TV since currently there’s no app store, browser support, or synchronizing and controlling features for mobile devices.

Toshiba Places is expected to feature in the VL-20 Series Regza 3D TVs that will be launched this May, across Asia.
