    After including Logitech and Sony, Toshiba also comes with a set-top box that Internet functionality to older TVs; Toshiba TV shows these Toshiba Stor.E TV electronics fair IFA in Berlin. The Toshiba Stor.E TV is similar to the Google TV boxes from Sony and Logitech, but seems not to use Google’s Internet TV platform. What system is used it is not clear. But the effect is almost the same: it closes the box via HDMI to the TV, and then one can wirelessly with the Internet on the big screen.

    Besides a built-in browser provides the set-top box in a video conference mode, where you can connect a USB webcam for video chatting on television; also, the system provides access to Toshiba Places, Toshiba’s online service for TVs. You could also use the device as a full-featured network HD media player and it is possible to use USB hard drives and USB sticks with movies, photos and music to connect.

    The Toshiba Stor.E TV comes with a two-way remote. With one hand, one can zap; on the other hand, one finds a full keyboard and a trackpad to control the browser. The Toshiba Stor.E TV enters the fourth quarter on the market for an unknown price.

    Actually, the Toshiba's Stor.E TV series have always been more in direct competition with other external multimedia drives like WD TV Live and Iomega Screenplay. Sure, it competes with the Roku, Boxee Box, and GoogleTV due to its streaming capabilities, but it is better compared to Western Digital and iOmega's external multimedia drives.

    It does seem more like a media player, than anything else...
    Still cool, nonetheless....
