Toshiba plans big push on glasses-free 3D TV

Toshiba Corp will begin selling a 40-inch glasses-free 3D television in fiscal 2011 and plans to start marketing the groundbreaking devices beyond its home turf of Japan, executives said on Tuesday.

The Japanese conglomerate, which sells everything from household appliances to nuclear power stations, has already launched 12-inch and 20-inch versions of its glasses-free TV in Japan.

The company also sells 3D-capable televisions for use with customary glasses, along the lines of those offered by rivals such as Sony Corp.
Toshiba aims to sell 15 million televisions in the year to March, compared with 10 million the year before.
