Toshiba today announced the availability of its new DLNA certified UX600 Internet enabled television (IETV) in 40", 46" and 55" screen sizes.

In the United States, the sets will have access to a number of Internet services including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Picasa and the New Youork Times news service and come with a Wifi adaptor.

In Canada, the sets without WiFi adaptor, will have access to YouTube and carry different model numbers, however, thanks to an ethernet port and DLNA certification, you'll still be able to stream music, photos and videos to them from a DLNA server.

In addition to internet and network connectivity, the new LCD televisions feature edge LED lighting, 1920 x 1080p resolution, frame doubling technology, 6ms response time, Dolby Volume which ensures a consistent volume level during commercials or when changing channels, Toshiba's new Air Lagoon design, a special high contrast screen coating which the company says improves contrast in bright rooms, and a light sensing function which adjusts screen brightness depending on ambient lighting conditions in the room.

The new models also meet Energy Star 4.0 requirements.



The Toshiba 40UX600, 46UX600 and 55UX600 will be available this month in U.S. stores for $1,400, $1,700 and $2,500 respectively.

In Canada, the sets will be re-badged as the 40UX600U, 46UX600U and 55UX600U series of televisions and will sell for $1,700, $2,000 and $2,600 respectively.
