Toshiba Dynabook TX/98MBL Announced, Will Play 3D Blu-ray

Toshiba has just unveiled the Dynabook TX/98MBL notebook, which is being touted as the “industry’s first” to support the playback of 3D content in the Blu-ray 3D format. That said, there are some catches.

As for when it will be available, according to the press release, sometime “from the end of July” though no specific date was mentioned.
