Toshiba Regza GL1: 3D TV – On Sale In Japan

By Updated on

Back in October, we reported on the Toshiba Regza GL1, bringing you the price and sizes of the TVs. Now we are letting you know that the 12” GL1 is going on sale from tomorrow, but unfortunately only in Japan.

Toshiba’s new TVs defeat the common aggravation of 3D televisions, the glasses that you have to wear to experience the 3D imaging. Toshiba’s new models have done what many companies are trying to do by developing a TV with no need for the goofy spectacles.

By providing a glasses free solution, Toshiba are now revolutionizing the market. We have heard reports that the 12” model has a resolution of 466 x 350 and retails for $1,431. There is another model, with a larger screen but this is expected to be double the cost.

The 20” model goes on sale on December 25th. We know that the larger model will come with a 550:1 contrast and a screen resolution of 720p. So what will be happening with Toshiba next? Hopefully they have plans for a bigger, better version of these great televisions. You can read more about this over at Engadget.com and also at gizmosync.com.

When these televisions hit the U.S. they could really take off and become market leaders. You have to wonder how Toshiba’s competitors will react to this. Another thing to consider is that CES is just around the corner and normally has a few televisions being released.

What do you think of these new TV’s? When they hit all of the other markets will you be getting one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
