Lenovo Integrates Android 4.0 OS Into New K91 TV (CES)
Lenovo’s K91 TV is anything but an ordinary television. Instead, the 55-inch TV boasts Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as its OS and a Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core 8060 Snapdragon CPU processor. Another cool feature is that the TV can be controlled with your voice using natural language processing and recognition. But that’s not all! It’s also capable of video interaction with facial recognition via its 5-megapixel webcam that’s placed in the TV’s bezel. Its remote control is just as high-tech and sports a touchpad, 5-way d-pad, and motion sensor.
Lenovo didn’t skimp on the display either, as they incorporated 3D FPR technology into a “flicker-free,” LED-backlit, full HD IPS panel with 240Hz refresh into the screen. Although it’s categorized as a TV, the new K91 TV boasts specs better found on a computer or smartphone like 8GB of storage with an extra 2GB on removable SD card, 802.11n Wi-Fi, access to the Android Market Place and Lenovo Store, and seamless integration with other Lenovo devices, which can be used as remote controls or additional displays. The K91 TV will definitely be a huge hit, but Lenovo hasn’t announced pricing or availability dates yet.
