Lenovo’s Smart Display with Google Assistant hit the market on Friday.
There are two versions of the device, one with an 8-inch full HD screen and the other with a 10-inch full HD screen, priced at US$200 and $250 respectively.
“The cost is significantly below an iPad mini and it offers far more functionality than just a digital picture frame or a Bluetooth speaker,” said Alan Lepofsky, principal analyst at Constellation Research.
Buyers will get three months’ free access to YouTube Premium.
The Lenovo Smart Display runs on Google’s Android Things, an operating system developed for the notoriously insecure Internet of Things.
Google has addressed the IoT security problem by providing three years of OS updates for free for every Android Things-based product.
Automatic updates are enabled by default. After three years, there will be options for extended support.
