Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

CES 2012

Lenovo has announced what it claims is the world's first TV to sport Google's latest OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It's also the first set with a dual-core processor.

Having already pitched its new ThinkPad laptop range for the Consumer Electronics Show 2012, the company turned attentions to the living room tech-head, introducing a smart TV, the K91.

The 55in K91 rocks up with a 240Hz 1080p IPS LCD display - the same screen tech as the iPad - plus a 1.5GHz dual-core QualComm 8060 Snapdragon processor, 1GB of Ram and a 5Mp camera. The smart set's "Sandwich" UI integrates three major functions: video on demand, internet apps and regular television content.

It also boasts speech recognition technology and gets with the times further by including cloud support.

The company says the Lenovo K91 is available immediately in China and will be introduced to Western markets at a later date. Prices have yet to be set. ®
