Toshiba UX600 series HDTVs certified Windows 7 compatible

Posted in Toshiba by Conner Flynn on April 2nd, 2010

Here’s something different. Have you been looking for a Windows 7 certified 55-inch TV? Toshiba thinks so. Their 120Hz UX600 series is the first HDTV on the market to get official Microsoft certification, largely due to DLNA support over Ethernet or WiFi.

The logo lets you know it’s a Windows TV so that the average consumer know what he/she is buying if they are looking to stream media to the living room. Hopefully no Blue screens of death here.

VUDU brings Pandora, Picasa and Flickr to connected HDTVs, more apps coming soonWait. I thought HDTVs were all about watching actual TV. Well, VUDU thinks it’s all about apps and they may be right. VUDU has today made both Picasa and Flickr access possible through LG and Mitsubishi sets with integrated VUDU software.

Yes, this was already available to those of you relying on one of VUDU’s set-top boxes, but some of us like to have everything within the display itself. Pandora streaming is also available on VUDU-fied Mitsubishi panels, but LG has “requested that only free TV and games be available on their devices.”
