[CEATEC 2009] Toshiba has been touting CELL-powered (the same processor inside the Sony PS3) TVs for a while, and this time around, it’s not about the video capabilities anymore, the emphasis was put on internet connectivity, applications and services. The TV has integrated web browser (Opera) and Flash support. YouTube was one of the applications demonstrated, but you can imagine that other web-based services should be available as well. I’m not sure how the user interface is like (plus, this version is aimed at the Japanese market), but we’ve been waiting for smarter TVs for a while now.
