Lenovo’s Android-Backed 55 incher
I think I can speak for the majority of men when I say we like big televisions. The Android operating system is also extremely popular. Not just to us cave-dwelling macho men either. Android runs on around 40 percent of the smart phones on the market, and is enjoyed by men, women, children, and some nuns. So why not smash those two things together, and get some attention? That’s what tech company Lenovo is doing. Don’t call it a Google TV, however. It’s running Android 4.0, also known as “Ice Cream Sandwich”, which is the newest version of the Android operating system that is making its way to the public.
This week, at a sneak peek of the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo showed off their 55 inch LE TV, or “IdeaTV”, that’s using Android, with its own wallpaper, or “skin”. Yes, it’s a full HD television that comes with 2 remote controls with a little extra schwing. The remotes come with touch inputs to interact with the icons and applications on the television. 4 remotes can be used together in conjunction to interact. 4 USB ports, a micro SD slot, and HDMI ports make this a formidable television for the market.
Don’t get your hopes up just yet. Its initial release is coming to…. China. Yes, that’s right, China gets the first incarnation of this television in April. Patience is a virtue guys.
