Lenovo announced on Sunday the world’s first Smart TV to carry Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Google-owned mobile OS to date.
Lenovo K91, as the Chinese PC maker calls it, is a 55-inch HD TV powered by Qualcomm’s 2-core 8060 Snapdragon processor. Aside from today’s TV features like HDMI, Wi-Fi connectivity, and expanded SD storage – the K91 also brings the possibility of video interaction and integration of face recognition technology through its built-in 5MP camera. And with Android Ice Cream Sandwich under its hood, Lenovo says it would “unite three major smart TV functions, including Video On Demand (VOD), Internet applications and traditional TV programs”. Additionally, users can access the Android Market on top of the applications they can get at Lenovo’s own App Store.
Lenovo’s K91 Smart TV is available in China today and the rest of the world at a later date.
