Lenovo on Tuesday started taking pre-orders for its series of Google Android-powered smart TVs in China.
According to the Chinese PC company's Web site, the cheapest model is the 42-inch K71 which retails at 6,499 yuan (US$1,027). The three other models are the 42-inch K81, 55-inch K81 and 55-inch K91, which all include 3D-conversion capabilities and are selling at 7,499 RMB (US$1,185), 11,999 RMB (US$1,896) and 14,999 RMB (US$2,370), respectively.
Each set has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and includes apps, the company said. It added that customers have the option to include a Weibo stream during programs, allowing them to interact with others about the show.
Lenovo did not say if it would offer the TVs in other markets in Asia-Pacific. However, the company has a history of launching products first in China before releasing them in overseas markets.
