We bring over 135 years of innovation
Were expanding the limits of mobile computing by announcing new technological advancements time and time again. But our passion for innovation is hardly new. In fact, it dates back centuries, starting with two of the most brilliant minds in Japanese historyHisashige Tanaka, well known for a series of inventions in his youth, and Ichisuke Fujioka, called the Thomas Edison of his country.
These legendary figures launched groundbreaking businesses that would thrive for decades and later merge to become Toshiba. And they both brought innovations to Japan that would ultimately benefit the rest of the world, like X-ray tubes or radio transmission tubes in 1919. In the 30s they introduced the first electric washing machines and refrigerators in Japan, later the worlds first color video phone, color TV with black stripe-type cathode-ray tubes, plus a lot more.
And today at Toshiba were still fueled by the questing spirit that inspired these amazing men.
Were always ahead of the curve
Why pack our products with innovations before the world asks? Because thats what experts do. For example, we built a Diversity Antenna into laptop LCD bezels for the best possible wireless and broadband reception. We always bring in the newest Intel® and AMD® processor technologies to help you do more, do more at once, and stay in touch wherever you go. But thats not all.
We also added TV tuners to make our multimedia PCs even more amazing. We redesigned our Satellite® laptops with a gorgeous high-gloss surface to stand out in a crowd. And we were very proud to unveil our REGZA® line of premium-quality televisions.
All this for one simple reason: because in todays fast-paced world, tomorrow comes all too soon.

And to make life better for you.

Later came the first wireless laptop to let you expand your computing beyond four walls with email and the Internet, followed by the worlds thinnest widescreen 12.1 laptop with a built-in optical drive to help you travel lighter. Weve unwrapped many other originals, toolike the first DVD drive and color monitor in a laptop, plus the first 4-in-1 audio video laptop, just to name a few.
