Lenovo Targets Business Executives For Home Receipe Smart Display
In a strange twist Lenovo has moved to targeting enterprise business executives for a home product, or at least their PR Company has despite executives claiming at IFA that the device was “ideal for the home”.
According to the bright PR sparks at Fuel Communications Lenovo’s third PR Company in three years the new Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant appears to best suited to an audience of Australian Newspaper business executives who read business stories than mums dads and kids who buy their products from a JB Hi Fi or The Good Guys where the new home product is being sold.
In what is shaping up as a brutally competitive market with Amazon and Google both launching new products to compete with the Lenovo Smart Display that comes in two screen sizes – 10-inch (399) and 8-inch for ($299).
The device has a speaker as well as a screen, for reading recipes or looking up your shopping list according to executives at IFA. Then again it could come in handy for chasing down the latest stock option if Lenovo’s latest PR exercise is anything to go by.
The system which has Voice Match, so the Smart Display can distinguish between up to six different people in your home or office as well as video calling but you do have to have Google Duo to connect to another Google smart speaker with screen like the recently announced Google Home Hub or a smartphone. Then again, the business guys who read the Australian are primarily Apple device users according to the latest News Corp research.
The device’s display can also be turned into a digital frame and used to showcase your Google Photos. The Lenovo Smart Display is available now in soft grey and bamboo at JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Officeworks. Anyone who buys a Lenovo Smart Display will also receive as a bonus a Google Home Mini (valued at $79).
