With the entry of thin, light and powerful laptops by HP, Dell and Apple, along with the contracting PC market, Toshiba was not able to make a mark and cope up with what the end users wanted. This also made it a less preferred brand over the year. This resulted in the company selling its PC business unit to Sharp for around $36 million.
The company recently launched a new range of home appliances in India. The list includes refrigerators, washing Machines, washer dryers and water purifiers. The first in the list is the Toshiba multi-door refrigerator GR-RF646WE-PGI that is priced at Rs 149,990. There’s also six front-loading washing machines ranging between Rs 21,000 and Rs 80,000. Toshiba also launched an 11Kg front-load washer-dryer at Rs 79,990. read the rest here
