Lenovo shoots for style with its Google-equipped Smart Display
The Amazon Echo Show ($229.99 at Amazon.com) isn't alone anymore. In fact, at CES 2018, the Show's getting in the smart display category. Lenovo's entry into the field -- simply called the Lenovo Smart Display -- might be the most stylish of the bunch.
Launching Monday along with otherfrom LG, Sony and JBL, the Lenovo Smart Display features either an 8 or 10 inch screen for $200 and $250 respectively. Both will go on sale this summer, but no word if they'll be available overseas. The US price converts to roughly £150/AU$250 and £180/AU$315.
Like the Show, you'll be able to issue voice commands to Lenovo's Smart Displays. Say the word and you can control your smart home, search the internet, ask for directions or check your calendar. Lenovo's display will show info relevant to your question on your touchscreen like a map or your schedule for the day.
