You won't have to envy Europe and Japan much longer, if you had your heart set on a pricy 55-inch autostereoscopic 3DTV with nearly four times the resolution of existing sets: Toshiba confirmed to Engadget and CNET that just such a television will hit the United States in the first quarter of next year. Details were scarce and Toshiba hasn't provided a price yet, but if you're curious what other specifications might be on tap, look no further than Toshiba's existing Regza 55X3 and 55ZL2, which cost upwards of $10,000 in the aforementioned countries. You can also read our impressions of the Toshiba 55ZL2 when we saw it at IFA in September.
