Toshiba unveiled today the Toshiba CELLRegza 55X1 HDTV featuring the famous CELL CPU also found in the Sony PS3.
The Toshiba Regza 55X1 features the Mega Panel LED display with 1,250cd/m2 brightness, a 5m:1 contrast ratio and 240Hz technology. As far as I can translate the Japanese announcement Toshiba split the LED panel in 512 regions (96 are supposed to be standard) that are individually controlled to achieve good visual representation of the temper of the adjacent edges in the depiction of shadows and glows.
Toshiba placed a 3TB hard-drive storage system into the 55X1 and the CELL CPU plays out its power by enabling the recording of 8 channels at the same time.
Toshiba was not able to integrate all the technology inside the TV and the 55X1 comes with an external Tuner unit. Toshiba will start selling the Regza 55X1 in December in Japan.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
