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.
