Lenovo unveils ThinkVision 28 Android-powered 4K display

ThinkVison 28_01

Lenovo is kicking off another round of press releases today, announcing the Lenovo ThinkVision 28 4K smart display. As the name implies, the ThinkVision 28 is a 28-inch 4K display (3840×2160) running Android 4.4, allowing it to act as a ten point multi-touch display for a PC or an all-in-one Android device. The internals of the Lenovo ThinkVision 28 include an Nvidia Tegra processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, 2.1 megapixel camera, 2 5W speakers, microSD card slot, HDMI, USB 3.0 and DisplayPort.

The $1199 price tag of the Lenovo ThinkVision 28 is probably higher than most people are willing to pay, but it’s a comparable bargain when compared to the Acer TA272, which has a much lower resolution display. Will an Android-embedded 4K display entice you to upgrade your old PC monitor this year?

    High resolution displays render text that is much easier to read. It is too bad the high price will prevent widespread adoption.

    This is really fascinating – what does a monitor do when it’s powered by Android? Can I boot up the monitor instead of my PC? Can I blow my phone or tablet up to the big screen? Is incoming video signal like an app on the OS? Are we just talking about the OSD for screen calibration and whatnot being touch-controlled? That seems awesome because OSDs have long been a lesson in awful user interfaces, but would this be a waste of the Tegra processor? I need to know more. Looking forward to the coverage!
