The Cell TV is one of the most interesting products to come out of last year's Consumer Electronics Shows.  Toshiba's TV has been criticized for having a high price, but amount of functionality contained in one set just can't be topped.

The company announced three new Cell TVs today, which include the Cell Regza in a 55 inch size and the new Cell Regza Slim in both 46 and 55 inch models.  The main difference, as the name implies, is the thickness of the sets.

Both Cell TVs will come packed with three terabytes worth of hard drive space for the recording of up to eight channels simultaneously.  If digital media is more your thing, you can connect an octet of USB devices to the Cell.

Toshiba's new Cell TVs come equipped with the ability to handle 3D of course, but also the ability to convert traditional 2D programming to 3D.  It's also got plenty of tech built in to make 3D viewing clearer than ever, including an AutoView function that automatically changes brightness and contrast settings when you're using glasses.

As far as pricing goes, you're looking at around $6,800 for the Slim 46XE2, based on the Japanese price.  The Cell Regza 55X2 runs around $12,000.  There's no word on a US release as of yet.
