Toshiba shows new Regza HDTVs in Japan

Toshiba in Japan introduced three new lines of REGZA HDTVs, including the R1, H1 and entry-level A1. The R1 sets can record to or playback content from external hard drives thanks to a USB port. There are 32-, 37- and 42-inch models, each with IPS panels and a gaming mode, along with DLNA streaming support and four HDMI ports, a PC and analog inputs. Resolution is set at 1080p for the larger sets, while the 32-inch model has a 720p panel.

Both the 32- and 37-inch H1 sets have a built-in 500GB hard drive in addition to the USB port and other shared features of the R1s. The A1 series is the entry-level, and is made up of 19-, 22- and 26-inch sets, all with 720p resolution. There are two HDMI inputs, along with lesser connections, and no USB recording support.

The 32-inch R1 is due out in Japan on April 30th, priced at the equivalent of $1,393, with the 37- and 42-inch models coming early in June and priced at $1,929 and $2,465, respectively. The H1s arrive at the same time, priced at $1,607 and $2,143 for the 32- and 37-inch models. They are due to arrive at the start of August, with prices set at $697, $804 and $964 for the 19-, 22- and 26-inch sets. There is no indication of when or if Toshiba would bring these to the North American market. [via Impress]
